Prospective Corps Member: Yes, please!

Ex-Corps Member: Great! Well, first things first, let me introduce myself. My name is Jane, and I just finished my NYSC service year a few months ago. Here are some tips and tricks that helped me survive and thrive during my time at NYSC camp.

The NYSC orientation camp is a one to three weeks period where corps members are trained and equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out their NYSC service year. 

It's an opportunity to meet new people, make friends, and create memories that will last a lifetime. However, the orientation camp experience can be overwhelming for some corps members. 

Here's a guide to surviving your NYSC orientation camp:

  1. Be Prepared: Make a list of all the items you will need for camp and pack them in advance. Some essential items include toiletries, mosquito nets, white T-shirts, shorts, and other personal items.
  2. Be Punctual: Arrive at the camp on time to avoid any inconvenience. Registration is usually done on the day given to you on the call-up letter, and being punctual will help you complete your registration on time.
  3. Follow the Rules: The orientation camp has strict rules that must be followed. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules and abide by them to avoid sanctions.
  4. Stay Healthy: The orientation camp can be physically and mentally tasking. Ensure you stay healthy by eating balanced meals, getting enough rest, and exercising regularly.
  5. Network: The orientation camp is an excellent opportunity to meet new people and make connections. Interact with other corps members, make friends, and network to create lifelong relationships.
  6. Participate: The camp has various activities such as parades, skill acquisition, and sports. Participate in these activities to make the most out of your camp experience.
  7. Stay Positive: The orientation camp can be challenging, but it's essential to stay positive. Focus on the experience and the people you meet, and don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it.
  8. Be Respectful: Respect other participants and officials at the camp, and follow all the rules and regulations.
  9. Have a Positive Attitude: Stay positive and keep a good attitude. Remember, the orientation camp is just for a few weeks, and you'll soon be done with it.
  10. Manage Your Time: Manage your time effectively and ensure you attend all necessary activities and sessions.
  11. Stay Hydrated: The orientation camp can be very demanding, so it's important to stay hydrated throughout the day by carrying a water bottle.
  12. Keep an Open Mind: Be open to meeting new people and participating in camp activities. This will help you enjoy your experience and make new friends.


Prospective Corper: Okay, that sounds doable. But what if I face challenges at camp?

Ex-Corper: It's normal to face challenges, but you can overcome them. For instance, if you feel homesick, call your loved ones or make new friends. If you're stressed or anxious, practice deep breathing or talk to a counselor. And if you encounter difficult officials or fellow corps members, stay calm and respectful, but assertive and firm.

Prospective Corper: Thanks for the advice. I feel better now. Any final thoughts?

Ex-Corper: Yes, just remember that surviving NYSC orientation camp is not only about completing your service year, but also about growing as a person, making new connections, and contributing to your community. So, enjoy the experience, learn from it, and make the most of it.

Prospective Corper: I will. Thanks for your help.

Ex-Corper: No problem. Good luck, and have fun!
