Camp training is the practical manifestation of institutional training. The basic aim of camps is to introduce the cadets to a regimented way of life and to help in developing camaraderie, team work, leadership qualities, self-confidence, self-reliance and dignity of labour in the minds of the cadets. The cadets are exposed to the excitement of camp life where they apply the theoretical knowledge that they had gained in institutional training. It is mandatory for Junior Division/ Junior Wing cadets to attend at least one camp and Senior Division/ Senior Wing cadets to attend a minimum of two camps during the period of their enrollment. NCC conducts over 1450 camps annually at an average frequency of more than 100 camps in a month. Each NCC camp is structured for approximately 400 - 600 cadets with instructional staff comprising three to four officers and 15-20 Associate NCC Officers (ANOs)/ Permanent Instructors (PI) Staff/ Whole Time Lady Officers (WTLOs)/ Girl Cadet Instructors (GCIs). More than 8 lakh cadets attend these camps each year. Republic Day Camp is the acme of NCC training and is conducted in January every year.
