Things To Take To NYSC Orientation Camp – Daily Needs

February 17, 2013

You surely want to know things to take to NYSC orientation camp if you have been mobilized for the NYSC orientation course. We wrote an article on NYSC Orientation Camp Requirements i.e. Things you must take to the NYSC camp for your registration and acceptance into the camp. If you haven’t read that article, click on the link cited above for full information.

NYSC Mobilization Time Table For 2014 Batch B, NYSC Batch B 2014, NYSC Redeployment, NYSC Call-up Letters Batch B 2014, NYSC Redeployment, NYSC camp requirements, Things to take to nysc camp

Today, we are talking about those things you just need to take to camp for your personal use. Nobody will question you if you don’t have them but they will make your life in NYSC Camp a good one to remember.

We have been receiving several questions regarding this. Several questions such as:

Things needed for nysc orientation camp? and things needed for nysc camp?

These are some of the questions we have been getting and we are going to address these questions today.

During your registration and verification of credentials, some forms will be handed to you to fill. Complete them correctly, attach passport photographs and photocopies where specified and submit the forms. You can make photocopies of your credentials and take them along with you to NYSC Camp because a photocopy could cost as much N10. It seems small but you can make 4 copies with that outside the camp. These are NYSC camp requiremets and you should not forget any of them.

After your registration, you will be issued with your State Code Number. This will be like your PIN throughout your Service Year.

After getting your NYSC State Code Number, you can proceed to claim your NYSC Kit and Mattress after which you can proceed to get a Room. These steps might be different in other camps, I’m only sharing the experience of how it happened at NYSC Orientation Camp, Iseyin, Oyo State during my own time.

After you have gotten your kit and secures a place in the hostels, you can settle down and you are good to go to start the Military Parades.

Personal Needs For NYSC Camp Life – Things To Take To NYSC Camp

Your NYSC kit should contain 1 NYSC Crested Vest, A pair of Khaki Trousers, Cap and Jacket, 2 White T-shirts, 2 Pairs of Knickers, 2 pairs of Stockings, A Pair of Yellow Jungle Boots and One Pair of White Converse. A “Belt” is also included.

Throughout your stay in the NYSC Camp, you will only be allowed to wear your white T-shirts and Knickers, except during ceremonies when you are to wear the crested vest and the khaki Jacket and Trousers. You are also to be in your white converse always.

You might not like the White T-shirts that will be handed to you at camp so you can get those fitted LUX, CHASE DEER, MACHO brands of T-shirts as long as they are white. You might also not like the white converse that will be given to you (always ugly), so buy a fancy one along (White). With these duly pointed out, no need to pack a lot of clothes to the Camp. You should only take a few in case you need to go to Mosque on a Friday or Church on a Sunday. You should take them to NYSC Camp if you want to appear good at Church and Mosque Services.

NOTE: Make sure you take extra white vest and shorts to Camp because (1) they are very expensive at the Camp Market called MAMI MARKET (2) you will most likely not have time not to wash during the week because you would normally be so tired to wash during weekdays after going through all the Military Parades and Man O War Drills.

You will also need a WAIST POUCH (usually top of the list on things to take to NYSC orientation camp) to keep your valuables like cash, phones, and etc. while outside your room. You don’t want to lose anything at camp, so it’s safe to get that pouch and carry your valuables everywhere.

Don’t take materials like pressing iron, knife, fork, tin cutter to the camp. They will be seized and returned to you only on the last day of camping. I was told this is a security measure. And sincerely, they don’t fall under things needed at NYSC Orientation Camp.

If you have a camera you can take it along, you are going to need it at NYSC Camp because you will want to snap a lot of scenes. If you have a Smartphone with great camera, that’s good for you because you can easily take and share photos on social networks. If you don’t have any of those, you will have to pay some guys on camp who do that as business to follow you around and snap you wherever you go. They might charge up to N2000 for the duration of the camping. They should give you all your photos and videos in CDs at the end of NYSC Camping.

You will be fed three times a day in camp but I must not lie to you, the food there is nothing to write home about. They can be nice on few occasions but most days, they are poor (that’s my own view though). If you are someone like me who loves to eat good food, make provisions for your own food. You should get some fast foods along, some breakfast cereals and beverages. They were part of my own things needed for nysc camp (Top of the list too). You should also hold extra cash to eat at the Mami market. You will get good foods there.

You should also take a MOSQUITO NET along with you- You know why! You can take things like Bucket, Sponge Case, etc. along if you can. They can be expensive there. It is a thing needed during preparation for nysc camp

Sometimes, the full regalia given to you might be too big for you, so you need to slim-fit them. This will cost you some money at the Mami market. They can charge up to N1500 to slim-fit your Khaki Top and trousers. Take some MONEY with you. Things are very expensive at the MAMI MARKET.

I hope this have been able to solve some of your questions. If you have any other one, please let me know. I will be glad to answer as best as I can. These are things I believe are needed during preparation for NYSC camp.

Please share this article with people.
