For the first time I would only camp out for a night or two to get a feel for it. You'll need to bring all the food you need for your family, bring extra clothes for everyone and a few extra pairs for the little ones. If you'll be camping near water, bring extra shoes and life jackets. Also bring face and hand wipes and plan on everyone getting dusty and dirty. If you have any long haired little girls, bring pony tail holders because roasted marshmallows always end up in hair! Don't forget to bring a small tarp to put under your tent when you set it up. If you don't the moisture from the earth will seep through the bottom of the tent and make you feel cold and damp. Another tarp to put over your whole camp site is also nice when it rains, but not necessary.

Do you already have gear? Are you familar with the place you intend to camp at (activities, shelters, baths, etc.)? Will there be electric & water available or will you be totally roughing it?
Aside from your basic gear (tent, sleeping bags, stove, lanterns, food, etc.), you will need a first aid kit, bug spray and lots of toys (hit the dollar store for some new surprises). You should have at least one extra full set of clothes per child beyond what you need for the weekend, plus lots of extra socks & a sweatshirt/jacket for chilly evenings (especially if you are near water). Kids love glow sticks (or glow jewlery) both for a nightlight & to play with.
