Choosing a team name was always one of the hardest parts of a Tuesday at camp.  The name had to be catchy, creative, and compatible.  If your team didn’t start with a strong name, you might as well accept defeat for the entire week.

I was part of both failing and successful teams during my years at teen camp.  My first year, The Gunslingers lost game after game and challenge after challenge.  One of my final years, Hypnotic Black Hooks won the week.  However, the most successful team I was ever a part of was the 2010 coalition known as PB&J: Power, Brains, and Jesus.

What made us successful?  First of all, we bribed the judges with PB&J sandwiches.  We also had a memorable cheer, appealing flag, and positive motto (PB&J is all you ever need to win!).  To top it all off, we dominated every team challenge and were undefeated the entire week.

I believe that our success all began when we chose a great name.  PB&J is all you ever need, after all.
