Acid loving plants need a steady diet of acidified fertilizer as well as acidic organic matter in the soil. There are specially formulated fertilizers for acid loving plants, including one for Camellias (Rhododendron/Azalea ferilizer will work if you can't find one formulated for Camellias), or you can use Miracid for your camellia. Enjoy your garden!
