Trust me, the joy and anxiety of going to camp can sometimes make you forget even the most important things needed for your camping. Don’t fall for it also.
You may not need that lovely shirt yet. I mean don’t bother buying those skirts, you may not need them on camp.
See the list of the things you may likely need for the NYSC orientation camp.
1. Photocopies of your documents, especially:
- Call-up letter
- Statement of Result/Transcript
- 1st degree certificate
- School ID card
2. Passport photographs
You won’t be allowed into the camp for registration without these things above.
Like 4 photocopies of each is enough. Don’t bother taking too many.
You can also carry 5 passports. it should be enough.
3. White T-shirts
4. White shorts
4. White tennis shoe
5. White socks
7. Bed sheet
8. Perfume/ body spray
9. Rubber slippers
10.Comb and hair needs
11. Makeup & accessories
You will be provided with 2 pairs of white T-shirts and shorts but you can take like to pairs along.
You can take two pairs of casual wears/mufti for Sunday and camp fire night.
1 pair of shoe and socks is okay, it is good to have a white rubber shoe that is easy to clean (sold at camp also). I strongly recommend that.
12. Toothbrush & Toothpaste
13. Bath soap & sponge
14. Detergent & bar soap
15. Toilet papers
17. Sanitary pads & Tampons
18. Shower cap
20. Bucket and Bailer
21. Body cream & lotion
It’s ok to buy buckets and non-essentials at the camp.
Other Recommended Items
22. Torch light
23. Mosquito net/ mosquito repellant
24. Food flask, cup, drinking flask & cutlery
25. Cloth hangers
27. Padlocks and keys
28. Face towel
29. Waist pouch
Everyone uses a waist pouch. its your camp bestie.
Most of these items can easily be bought in the Mammy market on camp, though at higher cost. So don’t bother carrying too many loads while traveling down to camp.
Optional First Aid Items
30. Methylated spirit
31. Bandage/ plasters
33. Inhaler (for those who are asthmatic)
34. Cotton wool

36. Anti-malaria pills
37. Camera & batteries

If you have an internet-enabled camera phone, do take it along. Camp life can be very boring without one. You will like to take pictures and share with your friends.
you only need to be vigilant and protective of your things.
40. MONEY, MONEY AND MORE MONEY
Never, ever, ever run out of it. Bring as much as you can along with you.
I wish you happy and safe camping.
