Main Question or Discussion Point

I (for lack of a better n more fitting term) suck at math, but I'm pretty ok at grasping physics concepts. So I'm wondering... If I were to minor in physics, how many years of the average college curriculum could I last before the topics become entirely too mathy?

I should add that I have some intention to improve my math skills, but who knows how that will go

Two years. That's the lower division where you could get courses not requiring calculus. After that, if you just can't master calculus, you won't be able to get the advanced level courses. For example electromagnetism requires partial derivatives and even harder things (vector calculus, or differential forms, take your pick).

It's just concevable that you could plot an experimental track in the right school and avoid real theory, but even engineers have to know calculus.
