Don't Forget To Use A Tent Camping Trip Checklist!!!
Tent repair kit
Roll mat/cot/tent mattress/air bed/camp pad
Sleeping bag liners (these are great. Extra layer of warmth and keep sleeping bag clean. Also, if it's hot you can use it instead of the sleeping bag)
Blanket (if it’s cold)
Head torch (great to be hands free, but annoying when bugs hit you in the face)
Citronella candles for insects
Rope/string (for a washing line and to repair stuff)
Table cloth (this may sound fancy, but is useful where campground picnic tables are dirty)
Swiss army knife/multipurpose knife
Umbrella (not just for rain, makes a good wind break too)
Needle and thread
Wet weather gear/waterproof clothes
Sarong (guys should bring one too. They are great for just almost everything...towel, headscarf, blanket, sunshade etc)
Long sleeves tops
Wooly socks for sleeping (if it’s cold)
Bag for dirty clothes
Shower gel (or you can forget this and just use shampoo all over you)
Razor & blades
Sanitary products (even if it isn't your time of the month...better to be safe than sorry)
First aid kit:
Antibacterial hand sanitizer
Insect bite relief cream
Pain killer tablets
Deep heat/tiger balm
In-car charger for electrical items
Chargers for camera, phone, ipod, laptop, GPS
