Introduction Your challenge as a summer camp merit badge counselor is to see that the Scouts who attend your session have the best opportunity to learn about basketry. It is important that they have a positive experience. This lesson plan is designed to help you plan a logical, high-quality program. You may have to use a slightly different approach in presenting the material based on your camp resources and facilities. Sign off Scouts as they complete requirements.
Resources Be sure to utilize all the resources available to you. There are several organizations that could assist you in demonstrating proper basket-making techniques. Utilize these resources.

1 Greet Scouts A. Examine all merit badge applications for Scoutmaster signature. Make a roster of the Scouts.
Discuss B. Review requirement 1 with Scouts.
C. Permit Scouts to work on requirement 2.
Discuss/Demonstrate D. Permit Scouts to work on requirement 3a, the square basket.
2-5 Review A. Allow Scouts to work at their own pace to complete requirement 3.
Note B. Inform the Scoutmaster of any Scout who might not complete the badge.
Wrap up C. Wrap up all the requirements. Prepare the merit badge cards for the proper signatures. If any Scout does not complete all requirements, make sure that his records properly indicate the requirements that he has completed and that the Scout knows why he did not complete the badge requirements.
D. Submit necessary records to the camp program director.
