And make the best of the camp experience so it doesn’t totally become miserable for us.

How To Prepare For Your NYSC Camp


Accept and Deal!

The truth of the matter is there’s nothing you can do about the issue.

Travel With Same NYSC Circle

Find people you know that are going to the same camp as you.

Believe me, it will reduce the anger because no be only you go waka go.

You guys should move together.

The journey will be bearable, not to mention that it’s safer.


As far as I know, this a very important thing.

Establish your mode of transport, is it by road or air?

It’s you that know how your pocket is.

I’d advice you just book a round trip.

If your stay has to be extended for whatever reason, you can call your carrier and suspend the ticket.

Stop frowning, it’s doable.

In your call up letter, you were asked to come to camp with your notification of result, school Id card, and 8 passport photographs, just go with 10, your green card and your call up letter of course.

Do you know you have to make copies abi?

Buy disinfectant, let me not do any brand endorsement.

In case the water at the camp isn’t on point.

If you like to forget tooth paste and toothbrush.

You will Buy at triple the price ni.

Your pens, stapler, gum, and others.

Keep your eyes peeled in camp.

You are not going there to stand under the sun for nothing.

If you are joining any group or club or forum, think it through.

You never can tell, you were active in camp might influence your place of primary assignment.


I could have added this under prepare but I won’t!

In the first week of camp, you’ll be given 1000N, in the second week, 1500N and the third week 19,800N.

It’s up to you to decide how much extra you’ll take.
