During the swearing in of the 2014 Batch A corps members deployed in Osun State at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Ede, President Goodluck Jonathan assured members of the National Youth Service Corps of adequate security whenever they are posted for the one-year mandatory service.

This 3 weeks of your life can make you or mar you . So as usual i would always drop advice and important information you need to survive that period .
Dos and Dont’s in camp .please read ,share and pass on to others . Do not forget to ask any question if you have .
Do not laminate your call-up letter.
Haba , why would you do so?. The call up letter is not your property , its the property of the government . It a costly mistake to be made o . Because during registration at the camp , your call up letter would have to be stamped .
Do make a hair style that you can cope with
Ladies this is very important . Its just 3 weeks , so make a hairstyle that’ll last for that period . A style that wont consume your time when dressing because sometimes you might just have to run out for parade and you might look rough . I can say braids are ok. If you decide to fix weavon to camp you may be forced to do another hair in camp because of the season . Well during my own time i fixed short hair and it wasn’t bad at least i didn’t have to comb or style my hair every time.

Okay… Before you even start your preparation for orientation camp , you have to set your mind on what to expect , what to buy , things not to take and all but most importantly you need to know some important info about camp.
Orientation Camp is a once in a life opportunity . its a time you really meet different kind of individuals most especially for the butty children and those who went to private university. You will meet , live and learn from strangers. At the end of the day, our experiences might be different but having a fore-knowledge of what to expect will reduce your “camp-shock.”
For some this would be a 3 weeks to remember . Try to prepare well as much as you can for the 3 weeks of camp life:
NUMBER 1: HAVE ENOUGH CASH FOR SPENDING.
Yes o . everything in camp is about money . You pay to charge phones , pay to wash , some pay to eat (mammi). pay to even use clean toilets. So just try o and have enough cash.But having experienced being broke (you might not get an ATM to withdraw money), I’ll say please bring pocket money… But also learn to budget. Don’t spend extravagantly… Be very frugal in your spending. Don’t buy everything you see… Also don’t allow camp photographers take pictures of you randomly- of course unless it is part of your plan. Be kind to others but also ensure you are not careless with your spending. Read the rest of this entry
