Today, we will be talking about how to prepare for NYSC camp or better put orientation program.
This will talk more on the mental preparation if you want to read about the academic preparation Check here.
- The foundation of a successful service year is the orientation course programme or camp training. The first duty you owe yourself, therefore, is to live through the rigours of the camp exercise and be sufficiently focused to imbibe the instructive training. This has not changed due to pandemic, but maybe worst because the numbers have reduce and the eye is on everyone now, that before. Note that the course is a compendium of the service year where the facts, the figure, the dos, and don'ts are spelt out.
A corp member that fails to listen well or ignore the lessons of the camp does so his/her own risk and exposed to diverse dangers during the service year. Many sensitization is done during this orientation course including Security, Health, Community Development Service and even Skills Acquisition that can be useful for anyone during/after the service year.
- The following are important points to note
a. Make up your mind to adapt, submit to, and obey all the rules and regulations spelt out for NYSC scheme, on your call letter when you get them.
b. Determine to persevere, be painstaking, and diligent.
c. Endeavour as a matter of compulsion to carefully read and study all materials, protocols, and instruction issued to you.
d. Be committed to keeping a notebook for jotting important information arising from all lectures and other instructional sessions. Those will become very valuable during your primary assignment.
e. There is emergency training meant to prepare you mentally and physically for survival during periods of crisis. Make sure you respond sharply and promptly to fire alarms, which is a military drill for mobilizing people. These are essential tools for your safety and general security.
f. Report promptly to your primary assignment duty post after the orientation exercise. participate effectively in the local reception and welcome programmes. Register and take the briefing from the NYSC Local Government Inspectors seriously.
g. Always stay connected with other corps members and if you have any questions ask them. A good way to stay connected is by joining Telegram NYSC Supergroup by searching "nyscgroup" on Telegram or CLICKING HERE

Like, I said earlier this post is for mental preparation, and with our society getting more and more unsafe in almost all parts of the country (not to scare anyone) we need to prepare all around.
