Well first... how do you know it is your cam seals? If you need them replaced then.....well replace them. It is a common thing for cam seals to go out. In the mean time keep oil in the car. Always check your levels and you should be fine driving it around until you get the problem fixed.

Remove timing covers, pin timing belt tensioner, remove belt, remove cams, pull/replace seals, reverse the process .

Find a walk through for replacing the timing belt. But loosen the cam gear bolts after you take the timing belt cover off. Once the belt is off you can take the cam gears off and then use a seal puller (bent flat head screw driver) to pull the seal. Then use the old seal to push the new seal in.
