I met this girl at summer camp and I really care about her but she lives several states away. She calls me her boyfriend and I care about her but college is starting for me this year. So what if I meet someone who is actually real and in my life that I care for? What then?

Just tell her the truth - you care about her and would love to date her, but you both need to be realistic, and the distance makes it unlikely that it could really last for long. Make it about her so she doesn't think you're just trying to get rid of her to keep options open... something like "It's not fair to you to be hung up on a guy who's so far away. Things might not work between us, so if you find someone you like who's closer, I don't want to to pass it up because of me." Once she realizes you're right, she'll hopefully agree and tell you the same. You can still talk to each other until something happens, but just be open to the idea that one or both of you could meet other people. I've had this conversation a couple times... it sucks, but it's reality.1
