Items you Should take to NYSC Camp – Daily Welfare

To have a great time in camp and be very comfortable throughout your 3 weeks stay, just get the items below and come with them to camp. Although they are very much available at the mami market, but I swear You will not like the price tag.

  • Toiletries: The number one on my list is toiletries. Believe me many people look down on this, but this happens to be what most people beg for in the camp. I mean from soaps, to tissue paper, cream, dettol, bathing buckets and so on. They are very important, so my advise is get yours before coming.
  • White round-neck T-shirt and white Short: Although a two pair of this will provided for you at camp, but my dear it will not be enough especially if you are a neat person that can’t repeat cloths. And am sure you can’t be washing twice a day. So get maybe two extra each that you can substitute for in the camp. In case you don’t know these white t-shirts and shorts remains your basic wear throughout your stay in the camp.
  • White Sneakers/Tennis Shoe: You will also need a pair of white shoe to supplement the one that will be given to you. Remember this is what you will be wearing for this three weeks.

  • Feeding Items: You should at least come with a food flask to collect your meals, a spoon, cup and other items you think you will need to eat with.
  • Money: Money will be needed for up keep, though you will be paid during this 3 weeks, but i know you don’t want to be indebted and have your certificate seized by the Mani marketers. So come with extra cash or ATM card to access money while in camp.
