Megan Moffitt Eilers: Camp Director
Hello, my name is Megan and I am the Director of Camp Pegnita. During the year I teach at Villa di Maria Montessori School. Camp Pegnita has always been a big part of my life. This is my 18th summer working here! I first learned about camp through my years as a student at Villa di Maria School . When I was old enough I applied for a job at Pegnita, and immediately fell in love with the beautiful surroundings, the amazing outdoor activities, and of course, the kids! The kids are really what make this job so special, and I am truly grateful to have had so many wonderful experiences throughout my years as both counselor and director at camp. Summer is a great time for children to relax, swim, enjoy nature, play outside, and make new friends, and I have always thought Pegnita offers the perfect environment for them to do just so. Camp is my second home, and I am looking forward to sharing new experiences this summer with all the kids and staff.
Amanda Boyle: Summer Co-Director
Hello, my name is Amanda and I am the Co-Director of Camp Pegnita. I have been working at Pegnita since I was in high school and every summer I am drawn back to experience the pure joy that is a day at camp. During the school year I am a teacher in Rockwood and I love to see learning take place both in the classroom and out. Seeing campers come back year after year and seeing many transform into staff motivates me to keep growing alongside Camp Pegnita.
Jeremy Lang: Assistant Camp Director
Hi, my name is Jeremy Lang and I am the Assistant Director of Camp Pegnita. During the school year I serve as Operations Coordinator for Villa Di Maria. I am the child of two Camp Directors so I come by this profession naturally. Over the past 10 years I have had the opportunity to work at different residential and day camps and I am excited for my second summer at Pegnita. The 70+ years of tradition get me out of bed each day, eager to see all of the smiling faces and witness the incredible work our counselors do with their campers.

Justin Shepard: Counselor in Training Director
Hello, my name is Justin and I am the CIT Director at Camp Pegnita. This will be my second summer and I can't wait to get started. There is nothing quite like the thrill of guiding a group of CITs through the trials and tribulations of learning do be a camp counselor. At Pegnita we believe that this will be one of the hardest and most rewarding job anyone can have and the skills they learn here will help carry them to success throughout their lives. When I am not teaching at Camp Pegnita I am an Assistant in the Upper Elementary classroom at Villa Di Maria.
