Going to camp with the above listed documents and items will get you through your registration at the orientation camp, up to the point of collection of mattress and your NYSC KIT.

The NYSC kit consists of: 2 round neck loosely fitted white T-shirts, 2 pair of white shorts, One NYSC crested vest, a pair of NYSC khaki (Jacket, Belt and trousers), a crested NYSC cap, a pair of Jungle boots, a pair of NYSC white tennis shoes.

However, here’s a list of 10 survival kits during
the three weeks.
1. ROUND-NECKED WHITE T-SHIRTS : This is an essential outfit worn everyday in camp throughout your 3 weeks.

2. WHITE SHORTS: NYSC would give 2 pairs of shorts you may need extra 4pairs so as not to be stranded because you wouldn’t be able to wash daily.

It’s advisable you get one pair of rubber to save yourself from stress alongside leather tennis shoes.

4. CEREALS/PROVISIONS: Essential for those who would not like camp food with cup, plate, water bottle(useful on parade ground or long hours lectures).

5. TOILETRIES: antiseptics, insecticides, towel, sanitary pads, this is essential to keep you from infections and skin reactions.

6. MOSQUITO NET: Take along with a rope to tie it to your bunk to avoid malaria.

7. CASH: Atleast 25,000 with your ATM card ,there are lots of things that take up money in camp like food, charging of phones, e.t.c

8. WAIST POUCH: Very essential, it serves as
your bank and locker for important items. Things like phones, money, ID card, keys, ATM cards e.t.c

9. TORCHLIGHT OR RECHARGEABLE LAMPS: In preparation for morning drills at 5am and at night after lights out.

10. PADLOCKS: please lock your boxes and bags to avoid regrets. People who lost things to theives due to carelessness

OTHERS: bed sheets, Pillow Cases, Pillow, Power bank, pain relief drugs, antibiotics etc.

The camp environment is prone to stealing so please your WAIST BAG should always be on your waist No matter where you want to go to even to toilet and if possible get the smallest size of padlock and always lock it. Stealing starts the first day of camp opening. BE WARNED

Please don't be fooled or deceived those military men you see on camp, they cannot influence your posting apart from the RSM who himself might have just one or two slot so don't get your self messed up with them. If anybody can help you on camp it's the NYSC officials and be very careful.

Better keep that your ALUTA madness, CULTISM and IGBO SMOKING at home because once you are caught you will be dismissed
