If you have ants on your camellias, it is likely you also have aphids. The ants will "milk" the aphids for their honeydew. Aphids can be hard to see, but they normally cluster behind blooms or in the crutch of branches.

Treat the plant for aphids. Once the aphids are gone, the ants will also leave. These articles will help:
