VanCamp can both be Flemish(Belgian) and Dutch surnames, but she most likely is Dutch also this website mentions her as ”Canadian people of Dutch descent”

CORRECTION: The surname looks Flemish rather than Dutch. Flemish surnames often have a C or CK in them where a similar Dutch surname has a K. But van Camp implies “from a place called Camp” and google maps confirms that Camp is in Belgium, not the Netherlands

actually I was mistaken about there being a place called Camp. Nevertheless, the Dutch equivalent surname is van de kamp so I still maintain that van camp is flemish instead. I additionally tracked down a lawyer called Eddy van Kamp who lives and works near Antwerp which is definitely in Flanders.

There’s a town called Oostkamp in Belgium.
With a k.
But since Flemish is Dutch, the name is of Dutch origin.
However her family may very well be Belgian.
