Your engine uses a timing chain, there isn't a camshaft seal per say at the camshaft sprocket side of the engine. Oil seals fail over time and get brittle or the lip of the seal just wears. A build up of crankcase pressure due to a restricted PCV valve could cause seal failure but most likely just a fatigued seal or gasket is causing your leak.
