Are you sure that the wear is caused by camber? Excessive toe, in your case toe out, can cause the inner shoulders to wear. The only way to adjust camber, on a 'non-adjustable' car, is to either bend the strut or slot the mounting points - neither of which most shops will be willing to do. In many cases, due to worn parts, toe settings will change when you go from a static to a dynamic state. If the alignment settings are close to the maximum allowable in a static state, they will be pushed beyond when the car is in motion.
