My husband got a job in a camp and we're going to the country for the first time. What are some important things that I need to take along? I'm clueless...... And my mom or sisters never went to a bungalow either so I have no help from them.

All your summer clothes + sweatshirts, and a rain jacket if you have one. You don't need your dry clean shabbos outfits, more casual clothing. If you have active clothing and may join a workout group, take it along.
Swim stuff (bathing suit, if you have/use bathrobe or cover up)
Crocs or the like
Sneakers
If you want one dressier flat that can work for weekday and shabbos.
Towels
Cheap linens

For the kitchen: will you be doing your own cooking, or getting food? Is there a kitchen in your bungalow? Will you want your blender?
If you're cooking in bungalow, some pots, serving pieces, peelers, real knives. Strainer for noodles.



If you have kids then basically everything they own, including their clothes, bikes/scooters/helmets/roller blades, some toys and board games. Also, rainy day activities.

Do you have travel candlesticks for shabbos?
Travel candles+matches for first week in case you forget to buy before shabbos.

To purchase there:

Sun screen
Food
Detergent
Shampoo + body wash
Dish soap
Disposable dishes
Toiletries toilet paper etc
Paper towel

I'm probably missing tons of stuff, I never went to the country I'm just guessing.

Wow! That sounds like a pretty good beginning. I see it's more work than I thought 😮

Its a lot to pack up, just go room to room and see what else you may need.
Wigs/tichels
Shaitel head
If you use needle and thread, iron, safety pins.
Brush for hair
Toothbrush & toothpaste
Rain boots maybe
Hangers
If you do yoga take your yoga mat, if you have a pet take all the items your pet needs plus extra food if you're picky on brands.
So many things are individual, see what you use in your weekly schedule.
If you're getting food then there's a lot less kitchen stuff to take.

Shmosmom you're such a help. Thanks!
Yes I'll be getting food, so that's a lot off of the list.
