Krista is a science teacher at the Brunswick School in Greenwich.  Meet Krista in her own words:

krista-wynia@2xYou may have seen a tall, blonde girl around camp who looks like an adult but acts like a kid.  She is usually wearing some kind of crazy tie dyed shirt or costume and has a lot of energy… all of the time!  You may ask, “who is this and why does she love camp so much!?”


Hi! My name is Krista Wynia, and I am the girls Upper Camp head counselor.

Fun facts about me are:

1. I grew up in Minnesota and am a huge Vikings and Twins fan.

2. I love BBQ chicken pizza and chicken parmesan.

3. I swam competitively in college and currently coach middle school boys’ water polo and competitive swim team.

4. I have worked as a camp counselor for 11 years. 1 summer in Iowa, 8 summers in Maine, and now 2 summers at Camp Playland.

My love for camp started at a young age.  I attended sleep away and day camps growing up. When I turned 18 I had my first job as a camp counselor.  Ever since I have spent my summers running around with kids at amazing camps in the Midwest and Northeast. I absolutely love playing and interacting with each of the campers. I enjoy participating in the camp activities, special events and being able to be silly and a kid at heart. Each summer is more fulfilling than the last and I could not imagine spending my summer any other way.  Camp Playland is the best!  I hope to see a lot of old and new faces in summer 2016!
