Although they do not lose their leaves in the winter, camellias do have
a period of dormancy in the winter. They bloom when they are dormant.
Thus, it is likely yours will bloom in the winter. Whether that is
early, middle, or late winter depends on the variety.

Many Camellias form buds in late summer which will not open until their
normal flowering time in spring. There are some species (C. hiemalis and
C. sasanqua) which flower in late autumn or winter.
