It's an award I got almost all my merit badges I need to get eagle so I just have to finish a few partials. I’m just going to summer camp to have as much fun as I can and not care about getting palms or anything.

If you are tired of doing the merit badge thing at summer camp: Most camps have some type of ropes course. Also check and see if they have an high adventure porgram. The down side of the high adventure programs is that you might not be camping with your troop & added cost. But you might be backpacking, doing a different section of a river every day, other fun stuff...

Wow, just was looking to up "environmental strip" on the search function. I ended up taking Energy and Archery ( I got shotgun a few months later xD). Wow, now I have done all of the Field Sports mbs at my camp and all of the handicraft area mbs! I feel so accomplished xD.

Thanks! This is a step up from last year, I was what we called a Range Monkey, or I was just an assistant on the rifle range or shotgun range, depending on the week.
