A cam change is a big job. On the older small block chevys, you had to drop the oil pan to get the timing chain cover off and that is a total PITA. I think on our small blocks, you don’t have to do that, not sure.

Degreeing a cam isn’t that hard, but adjusting the lifters is a real pain, that is if it still has adjustable lifters. If you really know what you’re doing, and have all of the parts, you could do it in a day, especially if you have somebody helping to clean the parts.

On my old chevy truck, I installed a 2-piece timing chain cover and can change a cam in about 6 – 8 hours myself, but that’s an easier job than a corvette.
