Mathew Robert "Mat" Camm (born March 29, 1990) is a Canadian curler from Cornwall, Ontario.
Camm is originally from Rockland, Ontario. In 2007, Camm played second for the Neil Sinclair rink which won the Ontario Bantam boy's championship. The team also won the silver medal at the Canada Winter Games that year.
In 2010, Camm lost in the final of the Pepsi Ontario Junior Curling Championships to Jake Walker. When Walker went on to win the Canadian Junior Curling Championships that year, he selected Camm to play as the team's alternate at the 2010 World Junior Curling Championships.
Camm had an even more successful 2010-11 season. In 2010, his junior team won the Ontario Curling Tour championship. This gave the team a lot of CTRS points helping them to qualify for the 2010 Canada Cup of Curling. However, they were helped out by many higher ranked teams choosing not to participate. At the Canada Cup, the team went 0-5, finishing last in a pool which was won by Olympic champion Kevin Martin.
In January 2011, the Camm rink won the Pepsi Ontario Junior Curling Championships, his only junior provincial championship. He represented Ontario at the 2011 Canadian Junior Curling Championships. The Camm rink finished second in the round robin with a 9-3 record. After winning their semi-final game against Newfoundland and Labrador, Camm would have to face Saskatchewan's Braeden Moskowy in the final. The teams were tied 7-7 after 10 ends, and Moskowy had to make a difficult nose-hit to defeat Camm on his final shot, which had to be measured.
Following his graduation for the junior ranks after the 2010-11 season, Camm played in his first men's provincial championship, playing third for Chris Gardner at the 2012 Dominion Tankard. The team finished in 7th place, with a 4-6 record. In 2012, Camm joined the Bryan Cochrane-skipped rink, throwing third stones for the team. Camm made his second provincial championship that season, with the Cochrane rink finishing with a 4-6 record at the 2013 The Dominion Tankard. The following season, Camm moved to throwing fourth stones on the team (Cochrane, while skipping, continued to throw lead stones). The team played in the 2013 Canadian Olympic Trials pre-qualifying event, but lost all three of their games. The team played in the 2014 provincial championship, this time making the playoffs, where they lost in the semi-final.
In 2014, Camm joined the Mark Kean rink at the third position. Team Kean finished first overall (8-2 record) at the Recharge with Milk 2015 Ontario provincial championships. After losing the 1-2 page game against John Epping, the team rebounded with a semifinal victory against a Peter Corner rink which had Wayne Middaugh throwing last rocks. In an exciting rematch final against Epping the Kean rink narrowly edged their opponents 7-6 to win their first Ontario Championships.
Camm will represent the province of Ontario playing third for Team Kean at the 2015 Tim Horton's brier in Calgary, Alberta.
