Camp started his animation career as a designer for animated series such as "ThunderCats", "Silverhawks", "TigerSharks", and several other series produced by Rankin/Bass. He then worked as a designer on "The Real Ghostbusters" for DiC, and later as a storyboard artist on "Tiny Toon Adventures" for Warner Bros. Television.

Camp was a co-founder of and director for Spümcø, the animation studio that created "The Ren & Stimpy Show". He played a major role in the studio's creative force until September 21, 1992, when he left to work for Games Productions(a.k.a. Games Animation), the animation studio Nickelodeon initially created to continue work on the "The Ren and Stimpy Show" series after Spümcø had been fired. At Games, Camp was promoted to creative director of "The Ren and Stimpy Show" and supervised work on the episodes made.

In the 2000s, Camp worked as a storyboard artist on animated feature films such as Looney Tunes: Back in Action and Ice Age: The Meltdown. Camp was the storyboard editor for the 2015 hit film Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge Out Of Water.

"Bob is one of those rare guys in television history that doesn't just push the envelope on what is acceptable but also blows up the envelope and drops an additional atomic bomb on what is left over to make sure," said event director Mark Hodges. "Through this, Bob developed one of the most memorable group of characters of the 1990's and we are glad that he will be a part of our event."
