Travel Tips to NYSC Orientation Camps
Prospective corp members should take note of these safety tips as they travel to their respective NYSC Orientation Camps:
- Every successful voyage begins with a travel itinerary. PCMs are urged to make sufficient travel preparations before embarking on their journey. As a result, you must guarantee and double-check that you have packed all of the necessary documents that will be needed at the time of registration.
- Thoroughly research your destinations before departing.
- Under no circumstances should you board a car on the side of the road because of a supposedly appealing low fare. It is the road to disaster. As a result of such carelessness, numerous people have become victims of armed robbers, kidnappers, and ritualists. You should only board vehicles from authorized parks.
- Keep your journey time in mind. Journeys must be planned so that you get to your destination by 6 p.m. at the latest. Please break the travel if you are unable to arrive at your destination by the specified time.
- Avoid unneeded debate/discussion on topics such as politics and religion, among others. You may unintentionally offend someone. Keep your thoughts to yourself.
- Be nice, but don’t put too much faith in individuals, and don’t be overly loud when answering phone calls to avoid accidentally disclosing information that could put you in danger.
- Keep an eye on your drinking habits. Alcohol dulls your perception. Always maintain your sobriety.
- Only bring what you need for the adventure. Don’t overload yourself with tasks.
- Normal attire is required. Avoid overdressing. Don’t, on the other hand, dress shabbily because you’ll stick out in either case.
Please keep a cautious eye on your personal belongings. It is recommended that you bring your important documents (certificates, international passports, etc.) with you.
Keep valuables out of your back pocket, as this is the pickpocket’s first port of call. It’s safer to keep your money in your front pocket.
Keep your family and trustworthy friends informed of your travel plans.
