Meet our Camp Directors

Camp Directors

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.

Sally Phipps-Schleifer was a camper at American Heritage and enjoyed it so much she came back and has worked at American Heritage Summer Day Camps for 18 years. Sally now serves as the Assistant Camp Director. She attended Auburn University and Lynn University where she played soccer and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. Sally is married to Coach Brian Schleifer, Director of the American Heritage Tennis Team for the past 20 years. They have three children who attend American Heritage School.

Gail Schneider grew up in Maryland and attended the University of Maryland where she earned a degree in Business Management.

The camp is located on 40 scenic acres in Delray Beach, Florida. Our facilities include a brand new track and field complex, a fine arts building, gymnasium/auditorium complex, and Olympic-size pool, Junior Camp teaching pool, six tennis courts, one outdoor basketball court, air-conditioned dining hall, three state-of-the-art computer labs, indoor game rooms, spacious air-conditioned cabins, plus acres of beautifully manicured fields including baseball/softball, stadium football field, and two soccer fields.


The goal of American Heritage Camp is to provide each camper with a happy, healthy, active experience. Our program offers a variety of activities that will enable each child to enjoy an enriching summer, while making new friends and developing new interests which often last a lifetime. Our camp staff has been carefully selected on the basis of experience, character, and leadership ability to achieve this goal by setting positive examples and maintaining high standards of excellence in all phases of camp operations. We all look forward to spending the summer with your family.


A highly qualified, well-trained and mature staff is essential to the success of any program. We maintain a high staff to camper ratio for the benefit of our campers. We have brought together a group of coaches and counselors who are friendly, responsive, understanding, and able to provide campers with leadership and guidance. In addition, each of our instructors has an excellent knowledge of the mechanics of their specialty and the most productive way to convey that knowledge to our campers. Several of our staff members have been a part of our camp family for over a decade.


American Heritage Summer Camp specializes in summer fun for children ages 3-14. Campers ages 6 and up have three different programs to choose from. We have our general American Heritage Sports Camp, Musical Theatre Academy, and Young Artists Camp. Cabins for ages 3-5 are co-ed, while ages 6-14 have separate boys’ and girls’ cabins. Each age level enjoys age appropriate sports, arts, games and other activities supervised by our highly qualified staff. All cabins (which are classrooms during the school year) are air-conditioned.


Camp is in session Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A half-day program from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. is available for younger children ages 3 & 4. They also have the full day option. Our two beautiful pools offer welcome relief from the summer heat for our campers. At the beginning of the summer, each camper’s swimming ability is evaluated,, and campers are placed in appropriate level swim groups for instruction. The swim program at American Heritage is committed to providing age-appropriate, sequential instruction in a safe and non-threatening environment. All swim instructors and life guards are Red Cross certified.


Each summer, a memorable and important aspect of our camp program is our many unforgettable and exciting special events. Fun theme days, reptile and wildlife shows, DJ dance parties, and carnivals are just some of the awesome activities planned for the entertainment of the campers. Other annual traditions we have at camp include 3 sensational carnivals (camp carnival week 2, splash-a-thon week 6, bounce-a-thon week 9)) and the upper camp sleepover with the giant smores celebration and ice cream sundae party during week 7 and 8. The Camp Olympics is always a favorite to end week 8. Don’t forget to come and Trick-Or-Treat camp style with us during week 9.


A morning snack is served. Lunch is served in our air-conditioned dining hall. A nutritious hot meal, salad bar, pasta bar, soup bar, and Boar's Head sandwich bar are some of the daily choices. An afternoon popsicle or ice cream is served to cool of the campers.
