What should I bring to go on a mountain camping trip?

I have never been camping before and I am going to spend a week tenting in the Poconos in August. I am not sure how much or what I should bring and I don't want to forget anything important!

    think about what you well want to eat then buy more then you think you need .we tend to eat more when camping .if your not back packing in then bring everything you would normally use at home .don't forget a stove and lantern and fuel for them and don't forget the salt and pepper it is a easy thing to forget and well mess up most meals without some .bring a sleeping pad and a good bag for the weather you have there during your trip.i love hot dogs and kielbasa over the fire for dinners and snakes .if you drink don't forget the booze
