The NYSC board sends out NYSC Camp Principles to mobilise students once they complete their NYSC registration. That, however, is not the case. Before you leave for camp, there are a few things you should know. Look!
Also, you need to know that those in charge of training corps members in the camp are the Soldiers, Man ‘O’ war and NYSC officials.

After the 21st day, which is the completion of your days in camp; Corp members will be posted to different places for their primary assignment.
