The NYSC camp is a camp made for the training of tertiary school graduates called Corpers or corp members after they have been sworned in. The training given to corps members is a rigorous training closely similar to that of the Nigerian army.

In the NYSC camp we under go various activities in a single day. All meant to improve discipline, intelligence, strength, hard work and self awareness.

  • My deepest gratitude t@Talecharmice @Talecharm for renewing my sponsorship. Thanks alot dear friend.

Morning meditations.

The first activity in every day is Mo rning meditations. Where all corp members will wake up to the sound of the trumpet at around 4:40am in the morning. All those praying will pray and afterwards joins others at the parade ground where corp members will do their meditations.

The platoons having presentation will present and then at exactly 6:00am The Nigerian flag will rise and afterwards all platoon commandant's and instructors will take command of their platoons and start the parade excercise which is meant to train corps members for the passing out parade competition between other platoons.

Then there's also the man o war martial arts groups, they sometimes wear a red head band to stand out of the rest of the corpers on field.

This excersises stops at around 8:00am or untill breakfast is ready to be served.

Saed lectures.

The second activity during the day is the saed lectures meaning Skills acquisition and entrepreneurship development. This lecture is the most stressful activity is the camp, disregarded by all corp members because that is when everyone is desperate to go to sleep. The saed lectures start at around 9:00am–2:00pm. Yeah it is such a long lecture.

The saed lectures is meant to enlighten and educate Corpers or youths on entrepreneurial activities and how they can be self employed and independent on government jobs which is hard to get and pays very little.

It educate youths on businesses lsuch as Agro Allied like; fishing, poultry, crop farming, animal feeds production and hatchery. And others like cosmetology, fashion design, electronics, repairs, ICT etcetera.

After the saed lectures corper lunch is then served and everyone goes back to his hostel until 4:00 pm.

Man 'O' war

The man o war is rigorous drilling excersise meant to train corp members spiritual and physically. It meant to raise the moral of corp members and to enable them fight their fear and be brave. It includes long kilometers jogging, stepping on bars, rope swinging, tunnel crawling, fence crossing, wall climbing, Rope climbing walking and rope sliding. After this drilling excercise you will have full confidence in yourself or not.

Evening Parade.

Just like in the morning there is also an evening Parade at exactly 4:00pm. Corper first join up at the parade ground and then splits into platoons with platoons instructors for a solo parade excerise. Corp member will train until 6:00pm when the Nigerian flag comes down.

OBS.

The last activity during the day is the OBS (Orientation Broadcasting Services). This is where entertaining activities are provided such as drama, dancing, debates and stage performance. Platoons also compete in all of the mentioned activities. Majority pay a close attention to this program but most sit and lay at the back sleeping. The Orientation broadcasting service is the most loved and entertaining program in the camp.

While in camp one must adhere to all rules and regulations given and must always obey command from the soldiers and officials for a safe And clean orientation

Thank you fellas.

I think we all need to undergo such survival training and also this is to teach us a sense of discipline. Hard work but it pays off in the long run.

The more I read about the experiences of people in this nysc, the more I am feeling reluctant to even go, I just can't cope with some of the things I am seeing here 😆
