Well my hood got smashed in and bent, the radiator support bar bent and the right side of my radiator bent as well. However the radiator is still in operating condition and has not given me any problems ...
I got into a similar accident a couple of years ago in a Geo Prizm (shares body of a Corolla). I'm currently fixing a 96 Camry which someone else damaged. So I know what the damage from hitting a Jeep wagon is like and that the support structure in the Camry and Corolla/Geo are very similar. The Geo is a little lower than the Camry, which explains your minor damage to the radiator itself.
The thing you might not notice until your replace the hood is that the radiator support will likely need to be pulled forward. In my Geo, I had to pull it forward about 1 to 1.5 inches (and ideally it should probably go another 0.5 inch but it works with the hood latch catching near the rear of the striker on the hood). In my case, this means I have to hold my hand down on the hood while shutting it in order for it to latch. I had to raise the Geo hood support a little bit too but this was mostly twisting it back into place. The Camry I'm currently fixing hit a pickup truck with a step bumper. It's damage was mostly taken by the bumper. The main inner bumper requires replacement. In your case, the inner bumper is probably OK, but you might want to reach under the bumper from the inside when you are straightening the radiator support to be sure it's not badly damaged. I doubt it is, but if it is, you will see a split in the steel around the middle of the inner bumper.
Most of the body parts (except the hood) are fairly cheap at discountbodyparts.com and the shipping is not too expensive. The headlights were a good price. The hood is probably best obtained from a junk yard or bought locally. On my Geo, the headlights were not damaged, but since the Camry is higher, check for damage to the plastic where the lights mount to the rest of the car. I'm 99% postive that the center (vertical piece) bolted to the radiator support is part of the support itself. Most of the pictures in the catalog don't show the center support in the picture, but I think I saw once (other than "Replacement" brand) that showed it in the picture.
