Ok, car was hit on front left wheel/fender which then pushed me into a curb. So now I have some positive camber on one of the front wheels and I'm wondering how much is correctable by using shims at the alignment shop?

Depends on how much deformation there is to the frame. Then where are they going to be mounted? The limiting factor that I can see is how long the bolts are that hold the suspension to the body. To get a shim(s) in there and to make sure the nut is secure will be up to the alignment shop.
Have you taken it to a frame shop to see if it can be pulled back to factory spec? It is amazing what a smart guy on a pulling machine is able to do. In some cases better than it came from the factory as these alignment frames have lasers.
