Why are some of the new growth leaves on my otherwise healthy camellia limp and soft to the touch?

This is normally caused by underwatering. New growth is more susceptible to a lack of water and will droop long before the rest of the plant does. Make sure the plant is getting enough water and check the roots for damage to make sure that they can take up the water.
