What To Bring
Before heading to NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Rivers, here are some helpful things to take along with you:
Your required documents such as Call-up letter, Statement of Result, Student ID Card, etc.
A waist pouch
White tees and shorts
The camp ground features structures and facilities for paramilitary drills, accommodation rooms, lecture halls, open field for sports and assembly and many of such. There are military personnel who train Corpers on appropriate military ceremonial matching, sports, as well as Man-O-War physical drills. There is the large market operated by the locals popularly called "Mami Market" where all camp needs are sold, including food and drinks.
It is said that Orientation Camp is the best part of NYSC, and it is somewhat true. Here, you meet people from all parts of the country and learn and accept local customs and different cultures, make new friends, build camaraderie and learn what to expect during your service year. All through your stay in the camp, except Sunday worship mornings, you will wear your all-white tees, shorts and shoes. You will be served meals thrice daily but most Corpers prefer eating at the Mami Market where the choice and quality of food is better. There is always an activity for each time of the day, with brief moments in the evening allowed for personal use. Go to camp with an open mind and a thirst for adventure and you will enjoy it to the fullest.
