Why should you buy these items before you step into the camp?
The hustle and bustle of the camp: On arriving at the orientation camp, believe me, you are in another world, a new place entirely, and your immediate focus would be checking in, filling your documents and undergoing the necessary registration process.
This preliminary exercise can be somewhat stressful, primarily if you are not used to getting things done under pressure. More so, in some camps, these registration exercises can take a toll on you and can extend for long hours which you might not have time to get the necessary things again on your first day at the camp.
Expensive items: Besides, items you should buy in your neighborhood for about N1000 could cost as much as double the price when you arrive at the orientation camp. This is why you must make all purchases while at home before traveling down to the NYSC camp.
