I would take off the battery cables and use a wire brush on the battery and the cables just to insure that it is not a corrosion problem. then turn on headlights and wipers at the same time if these work, then the battery is charged properly. Next make sure the car is in park or try the neutral position, sometimes you might have to wiggle it around to find the sweet spot on a bad switch. Next you might have starter pinion jammed..if its a "stick" then put in gear and rock the car back and forth to see if it will disengage, if automatic then see if you can get a 2x4 piece of wood and if you can access the solenoid, try and smack it real hard...then try it..sometimes it"ll only work if you have two people doing this.One trying to start it, while the other hits it. This will usually only get it started one time..but at least this is telling you that you have a bad starter "solenoid".
Now after all this and it doesn't work, if could be a seized engine or just faulty ignition switch wiring. oh! and i just remembered one last thing, i have a 97 Camaro V-6 myself..but its a stick, and in order to start it, the clutch safety switch has to work properly in order to start.

I would check ignition switch. On the starter, check to see if you are getting power to the small terminal on the starter when you turn the key to the starting position.
