Nysc Camp Essentials ( A checklist)

This is a quick and simple packing checklist for those heading to Nysc (national youth service corps) camp.


  • Call up letter
  • Nysc Green Card
  • University I.D card
  • Statement of Result
  • 4 Photocopies of each (you may need less than 4 but not more than, except you like packing paper )
  • Passport photograph.( Nysc would take any background, don’t let those photographers at camp deceive you)


  • Clear bag (to put your documents)
  • Pen
  • Stapler ( miniso sells some cute staplers at N990 for 2 pieces)

Camp uniform

  • White Round next shirts 
  • White Shorts
  • White Sneakers
  • Waist pouch
  • Sunglasses
  • Handkerchief 


  • Buckets 
  • Potty
  • Bathroom Slippers
  • Tissue
  • Dettol
  • Bathing Soap &Sponge
  • Toothpaste &Toothbrush 
  • Detergent
  • Towel


  • Paracetamol
  • Cough medicine 
  • Malaria medicine
  • Flagyl 
  • Mosquito net- spread your mosquito net under the sun for at least a week.

In fact wash it first so it doesn’t burn your skin

Provisions should be based on your preferences I took

  • Milk
  • Milo
  • Sugar
  • Cereal
  • Biscuits

Camping Essentials 

  • Cup , covered bowl and cutlery
  • Torch light/ rechargeable lamp
  • Padlock for your box and locker in case you get one
  • Bed sheet and a throw pillow 

Cash– I took N25,000 and it was enough you could take more or less.

Nysc Lagos camp had  atms so you can take your atm card as well.

I put this list together for my friend Onyinye , I’m  hoping other people find it useful.

If you’ve been to Nysc camp ,what else do you think prospective corpers would need ,please let us know in the comment section.
