Adhemar Ferreira de Camargo Neto, better known as Adhemar (born 27 April 1972 in Tatuí, Brazil), is a Brazilian former footballer.

Adhemar scored 22 goals at 2000 Brazilian National Championship leading São Caetano to a Championship final against Vasco da Gama, more than any other player. However, since São Caetano played for Copa João Havelange Group Yellow (second tier) before the round of 16, his goals scored at early stages were not counted for the Top Goalscorer award.

Known for his powerful kicks, Adhemar was spotted by American football team Tampa Bay Buccaneers to become their kicker, having scored nine out of ten 50-yard field goals during his trial. Although interested in the offer, he refused claiming he did not want to part from his family after being told he should stay three months at the United States until he could get a work permit and allow them to join him.

On 2 March 2012, Adhemar came out of retirement to play at Campeonato Carioca third division for Serrano.
