Sure do, but you don't need plans. All you need is an empty, clean
dry-wall "mud" bucket with lid and a clean plumber's friend (plunger).
Cut a round hole in the center of the lid just big enough to pass the
plunger's handle through.
To use, fill the bucket 2/3 full with tap water, add some Woolite, toss
in the clothes, slide the plunger handle in place, and then snap on the
lid. Use Scout power to agitate the wash. After you're satisfied that
your Scout has done a decent job of agitation, pour off the dirty, soapy
water and fill it up with fresh water to rinse. You might want to have
another Scout be the agitator for this cycle. Repeat the fresh water
rinses until you don't see any more soap bubbles.
We always bring one with us to summer camp.
