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)
- Stapler ( miniso sells some cute staplers at N990 for 2 pieces)
- White Round next shirts
- White Shorts
- White Sneakers
- Waist pouch
- Bathroom Slippers
- Bathing Soap &Sponge
- Toothpaste &Toothbrush
- Cough medicine
- Malaria medicine
- 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
- 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.
