Steph Puchalski

Kiyi! My name is Steph and I’m so excited to be returning to the shores of Moose Pond this summer. I grew up in Vermont, swimming in mountain brooks, playing in the woods and skiing as much as I could. I crave time outdoors and love sharing adventures with my family.  I was first exposed to Wyonegonic as a child through Family Camp, and was a counselor in Junior for two summers in 2001-2002. I have returned over the years to teach lifeguarding during both the pre-camp clinics and to a few of the CIT groups.  I love exposing my kids to camp life as I take on the role of Senior Unit Director for the second time. Haleigh (7) will be in Pooh Corner, Noah (9) will spend the summer at Winona, and my husband Joe hopes to visit as much as possible.

I enjoy working with adolescents and helping them learn to make their way in the world. I taught high school (and some middle school) math for ten years at both boarding and day schools prior to having children. I’ve coached track and field, swimming, and field hockey and continue to lifeguard and tutor.  I strongly believe that Wyonegonic cultivates an environment in which girls can be their true selves, explore new activities and ways of thinking, and develop a resiliency towards life. I look forward to guiding campers and counselors as we create community in Senior Camp.
