The basics you want in your camp are a place to lie down, a sleeping bag and protection from elements and possibly insects. The light option is a tarp, while a tent provides more protection. Learn to pitch your stuff before heading out! Every item should be thoroughly tested and made well. Consider a waterproof bivy bag for your sleeping bag.

If there's no real chance to restock food during the trip, the freeze-dried outdoor meals are good. Naturally hauling a week's worth of water by foot isn't feasible, so be prepared to purify it from natural sources. Boiling works, filters are faster. A gas stove is a handy companion, but if you have the option to make a campfire, do take it!
