Bob Stone grew up in Boston where his fondest memories are attending day camps and sleep away camps. He enjoyed playing golf, squash, and soccer in his teen years and received his undergraduate degree from Tufts University. Bob then went on to receive his law degree from the University of Miami and his Masters in Education from FAU. Bob founded American Heritage Summer Day Camps in Boca Raton/Delray Beach, Florida with the desire to emulate certain aspects about the qualities of sleep away camp that inspired him. He was on a mission to provide an environment for campers where they could learn and grow through instructional sports programs and other traditional camp activities. Bob is proud of our camp legacy as we enter our 33rd summer of American Heritage Summer Day Camps as one of the premier camps in Palm Beach County. Our campers grow with us through the years gaining confidence to pursue their passions and to serve as respected leaders in society.
