NYSC Camp Requirements For 2022 Registration

Are you a Nigerian Graduate preparing to serve in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Program? Do you want to know the registration requirements for NYSC orientation camp participation? If ‘yes’, we will show you all the NYSC orientation camp requirements, things needed for NYSC camp registration, and those items that are strictly restricted in camp. Before we proceed, Kindly check sample of NYSC Call-up letter for Batch A,B&C.

The worst thing that can happen to you is to arrive at the NYSC Orientation camp and realizes that your documents are not complete. Therefore, we urge every prospective corps member to carefully read this post to understand what is required from them.

The NYSC management would send you home if your documents are not complete. This has been the rule, and it’s strictly followed. To make this concise and handy, we will classify things needed at NYSC Orientation camp into two categories; 

  • Compulsorily camp requirements, and 
  • Essentially requirements.

Note: Things listed under compulsory category are documents that with none of them, you may not be registered at the NYSC camp. And the items listed under essential category are not compulsory but needed for your personal comforts.

NYSC camp registration requirements (Compulsory)

The documents below are Compulsory (If you arrive at the camp without any of them, you may not be registered by the officials):

1. Final year ID card

Go with the original and two (2) photocopies of your final year id card. To get your ‘final year identity card, visit the Directorate of Students’ Affairs in your school and make a request. Kindly note that NYSC also accepts School ID Card in lieu of final year ID. But they don’t accept departmental ID card.

2. Statement of result (B.SC or HND)

Go with the original and four (4) photocopies of your Degree or HND statement of result. If you have the original certificate itself, better. But if you don’t, just go with the official statement of the results. Those who do not have their official statement of result (or original certificate) should NOT go to the NYSC camp. For foreign trained graduates, they must present the original certificate itself (not statement).

Also, persons who graduated from Polytechnic within Nigeria would provide both ND and HND statement of results. 

Medical Doctors, Pharmacists, Optometrists or other medical profession, should go to camp along with the original of registration certificate with the Nigerian Medical Council, Pharmacist Board or Optometrist Registration Council and evidence of completion of houseman-ship or internship.

3. NYSC Call-up letter

Never forget your call-up letter! You need to go with the original and four (4) photocopies. NYSC will send this letter to you a few days after online registration. Please, DO NOT laminate your call-up letter because NYSC will reject a laminated copy.

4. NYSC Green card

Please, do not forget your Green Card. Go with the original and four (4) photocopies. Green Card is the online print-out slip after NYSC online registration. Also, Do NOT laminate it! Note: the Green Card and call-up letter are to be printed out in colored.

5. Recent passport photograph

Please, go with eight (8) copies. The background color should be white or off-white. Don’t listen to anyone that says you should go with over eight copies.

6. Medical Certificate of Fitness

Go with two (2) copies of a medical certificate of fitness got from any government hospital or military clinic in Nigeria.

7. Uploaded Documents

Foreign trained graduates should go to camp with the original of all documents they uploaded during online registration.

NYSC camp requirements (Essential)

Things listed below are not compulsorily needed in NYSC camp but they are essential for personal comforts. 

If you really want to enjoy NYSC camp, consider going to camp with things listed below;

8. White round-necked T-shirts

This outfit is worn everyday throughout the 21-days stay in the NYSC camp. NYSC will give you only 2, but these two are of poor quality and may not size you. Also, you may not enjoy wearing only 2 shirts for 3 weeks in camp that you will stay in camp.

9. White shorts

NYSC will also give you 2 pairs of shorts, but of poor quality and may not size you. You need like extra pairs so as not to be stranded if it tears.

10. White tennis shoes & white socks

NYSC will provide this, but it’s advisable you get an extra one pair for yourself.

11. Tea or beverages

This is very important for those who would not like the camp watery tea. Some people collect camp tea and then add some spoons from their own tea to make it tick.

12. Toiletries

Antiseptics, insecticides, towel, sanitary pads, pampas, etc. These are essential to help protect you from infections and skin infections.

13. Mosquitoes Net is very important in NYSC camp

This is very important, I know you wouldn’t like to go to camp and fall sick. Mosquitoes net will protect you from mosquitoes and other camp insects. Take one net with you and rope to tie it to your bunk.

14. You need Some cash in NYSC camp

You need to go to camp with some cash, there are too many things that cost money in camp. Things like, food, charging phone, taking pictures, laundries, etc. 

Also, go with at least N20,000, and also with your ATM card, because there are ATMs in some camp.

14. Torchlight in NYSC camp

Don’t say you will use your phone touch! Torchlight is important; make sure you buy rechargeable ones.

15. You will need Waist Pouch in NYSC camp

 Waste bag or pouch is essential. This will serve as your money keeper, and also as a locker for important items such as phones, money, ID card, keys, ATM cards, and more.

16. Padlocks is important in NYSC camp

You need a padlock to lock your boxes and bags to prevent camp thieves from gaining access to your properties. 

There are many people who lost many valuable things to the NYSC camp thieves. I know you wouldn’t want to fall a victim.

17. Your phone and power bank in NYSC camp

This is important for communication. If you don’t have a power bank or cell phone, please get one.

18. Other essential things need in NYSC camp

You can buy other things like bed sheets, pillow, bucket and other big things from mammy market (camp market) to avoid overloading yourself. You can also check list of things not allowed in NYSC camp.
