Isn't your Camry an LE model older than 2005? If so, these have rear drum brakes, and there's really no way something can get inside the drums.
Are you sure the front brakes aren't squealing?

Have you ever replaced the front brake pads? Maybe it's time, and you're hearing the warning squeal from the thin metal strip designed for that purpose.

Yes, pads have been replaced twice in 88K miles and was just recently inspected. This happened as soon as I was done cleaning the rims. I figure the cleaner dried something it it should not have or dirt got in there. So, is there a place to spray some lube, should I got to the car wash and spray soap and water in there...other ideas?

No, don't go spraying lubricant, or any other thin like cleaner, on your braking system.
Take it to a mechanic, who can give you a technical assessment as to what might be wrong.

Sep 01, 2010 (9:40 am)
When I step on the brake pedal on my 02 camry I hear a squeak. The car need no even be turned on. It sound like it comes from out side the car. Ideas. Is this a problem or just an annoyance?

Have your brakes on all four wheels checked. I would suspect it might be coming from the rear drum brakes.
