Uh oh... This looks like yellow leaf mottle virus.

This is one of many permanent plant viruses that can affect camellia plants, and will never leave the plant. The only thing that you can do is care for it until its demise. Be sure to never plant another camellia in the same spot, or it will suffer the same fate.
