What to Expect in the NYSC Orientation Camp
Batch B Stream I NYSC camp will start in June. The camp lasts three weeks. Here, you’ll do parade drills, learn new skills, enjoy cultural shows, and more.
NYSC camp can be tough. You’ll wake up early and have busy days. But, many say it’s the best part of their NYSC year. You’ll meet new people from different places.
Get to the camp early. This way, you can register on time and look around.
Items Needed for NYSC Camp Registration
Make sure to bring these items to the camp:
Final year ID card: Have the real ID and two photocopies. Your school should give you this ID. NYSC does not accept department IDs.
Statement of Result (B.Sc. or HND): Bring the real result and four photocopies. It shows you finished school. Foreign students should bring their own certificates. If you went to a polytechnic, bring both ND and HND results.
Proof for Medical Students: Medical students like doctors or pharmacists need more papers. They should show they finished their training. Also, they need a certificate from the right Nigerian board.
NYSC Call-up Letter: Very important! Bring the real letter and four photocopies. NYSC sends it after you register online. Do not cover it in plastic.
NYSC Green Card: Bring the real card and four photocopies. It’s the paper you get after online NYSC sign-up. Don’t cover this in plastic too.
Note: Print the Green Card and call-up letter in color.
Recent Passport Photo: Bring eight photos. They should have a white or light background.
Medical Fitness Certificate: Bring two copies. Get it from a Nigerian government hospital or army clinic.
Documents for Foreign-trained PCMs: If you studied outside Nigeria, bring all papers you showed online.

NYSC Camp Registration Procedure: A Simple Guide
Joining the NYSC camp? The registration can be a bit tricky, but don’t worry. We have a simple step-by-step guide to help you. Let’s get started!
Step 1: At The Gate
- Show your medical certificate of fitness.
- Take the COVID-19 test from NCDC. Only if you are negative, you can go in.
- Get a slip after the test.
- Check for any banned things in your bags. This is both manual and electronic.
Step 2: Inside The Camp
- Get your hostel and a mattress.
- Pick your bed space.
- Go to the registration unit. You will need some papers:
- Gate slip
- Call-up letter (the original one)
- School certificate or result statement (also the original)
- School identity card
- Go to the ICT table. Here you get your state registration number.
- Next, get your meal ticket and number tag. Wear the tag always. It is like your ID in the camp.
Step 3: Money Matters
- Bank people will be there. They will help you open a new account. This account is for your camp money.
- Find the bank given to you. Fill in the form to open your account.
Step 4: Meeting Your Platoon Officer
- Get your file and NYSC kit. This kit has NYSC clothes in it.
- Check your tag number. The last number tells you your platoon number. Like if it ends in 9, you are in platoon 9.
- Things You Should Bring To NYSC Camp
For a good time at the camp, bring these things:
- White tennis shoes (better if made of cork)
- Bed things: sheets, pillowcases, pillows, and blankets or wrappers
- A bucket

- Dishwashing soap

Important: Things like laptops, hair cutters, TVs, and sharp things are not allowed. They will take them at the gate and give them back when camp ends. If you forget something, don’t worry. You can buy most things at the camp’s shop. So, don’t bring too much stuff from home.
And that’s it! Follow these steps, and you’ll be all set for your NYSC camp experience. Good luck!
