17 Important Things You Will Need For The 17 Days At NYSC Camp

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) today, November 21,  posted the call-up letter for the Batch B corps members and many are jubilant as they got states they liked, while others are not so happy, as they were posted to states they did not. For those heading to the various NYSC camps across the country starting Thursday, November 24, what are the things they will need to survive the 17 days of the orientation camp? First, we consider the official requirements:

1. Call-up letter

This is the official call-up letter given to you by the NYSC. This will be taken from you and not returned, so you must not forget it, for it is the only evidence that you are a prospective corps member. Also do not laminate it, for it will not be collected if you do so.

2.  Registration documents

If you are a foreign graduate you should take along the original credentials you uploaded to the NYSC Portal for physical verification and evaluation.

3. NYSC green card

The NYSC green card is the first print out when you originally registered, before you printed your call-up letter, it contains your personal details and bio-data.

4. School ID card

You also need to take along your school ID card, so if you have lost it, you have to make another one.

5. Statement of result

The statement of result given to you by your university is also an important document to take along.

6. Photocopies

Also make about 5 copies each of all of the above documents, in case you are asked for more than one copy of any. There will be photocopiers in camp at mammy market but trust me, it is double the price and it saves time.

7. Passport photographs

Passport photographs are also very important, so you need to take as many as you can along with you. About 20 passports in red backgrounds are needed. You will need these passports for the various registrations, which might include: skill acquisition groups, religious groups, sports, redeployment, bank account opening and so on.

8. Licenses

For doctors, pharmacists, nurses and lab scientists, you need to take along your proof of certification. This include their certificates of registration with the Nigerian Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (NMDCN) and for pharmacies with the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria (PCN) respectively.

Now we consider personal needs:

9. Round-neck t-shirts

The round-neck white t-shirt is an essential outfit in camp in fact in most camps it is the only item of clothing allowed for the duration of the camp. You will be given 2 pairs by the camp administration and since you may not have time to wash, you might consider bringing extras.

10. White shorts

You will be given two white shorts at the camp, but it is likely too small or two big, so it is advised to buy and bring extras for yourself.

11. White sneakers and socks

The white sneakers are a very important part of your camp outfit. You will be given a pair customized for NYSC, but they are usually of low quality. So it would be better if you could get your own extra pair and white socks too.

Other things you need and can buy in camp include:

12. Padlock

13. Bucket

14. Toiletries

15. Rechargeable flashlights

16. Towels

17. Slippers

Enjoy your stay in camp.
