As you gear up for your NYSC orientation camp, it’s important to have a well-thought-out list of items that will make your stay comfortable and hassle-free.
While some items are mandatory, there are others that, although not obligatory, can greatly enhance your camp life.
Documents Needed for NYSC Camp Registration
a. Statement of Result (original copies): These academic records verify your eligibility for the NYSC program.
b. Valid School ID Card: Your school identification card confirms your enrollment status and is important for verification.
c. Passport Photographs (about 10 copies): Numerous passport-sized photos are essential for various registration processes and identification purposes.
d. NYSC Green Card and Call-Up Letter: Your official NYSC green card and call-up letter is your entry ticket to the camp. Remember not to laminate it, as doing so could lead to expulsion from the camp.
