Why do a couple of my friends have a camera on their iPod touch and I don't?

They also have a better screen, the fabled retina display... – Thilo Dec 21 '10 at 4:37

As far as I know, only the 4th gen iPod touch has a camera. Yours is probably older.

As you can see from the specifications published on Apple's site, there are no mention of a camera for the third gen iPod touch, while the fourth gen has detailed information about it.

two cameras, right? – Thilo Dec 21 '10 at 4:37
Yes, there is a back camera and a front camera. – reg Dec 21 '10 at 9:57

Only the 4th generation iPod Touch has cameras, that is the iPod Touch that was introduced back in September. The iPod Touch you have is either a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd generation, which means it doesn't have the camera.
