Colleen Camp was born on June 7, 1953 in San Francisco, California. She moved to the San Fernando Valley at a young age and attended John H. Francis Polytechnic High School, Los Angeles Valley College, and California State University, Northridge, where she majored in English and minored in theater arts. To help pay for college, Camp trained macaws and worked at the bird attraction at Busch Gardens on weeknights, weekends, and during the summer, where she performed for up to 2,000 people in six shows a day, six days a week. Ultimately striving to be an actress, Camp also took private acting and singing lessons and was eventually noticed by a talent agent. After the agent viewed an hour-long Busch Gardens television special featuring Camp and her birds, she was signed for national television commercials for both Gallo wine and Touch of Sweden hand lotion. This exposure led to small television parts in shows such as Marcus Welby, M. D. , Happy Days, and Love, American Style, as well as a six-episode stint on the miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man.
