Sneak in a body brush, a hoof pick, duster and rubber curry comb as if it is a large camp and you are not caring for your own horse I can guarantee that all the decent kit (i.e actually has bristles) will have mysteriously disappeared in 5 seconds flat!
You may also want to take some strong masking/duct tape as there is absolutely nothing worse than finding out that a hole is in your boots early on. The bad thing about discovering holes is that you have to actually step in a puddle first to realise - squelch. At least with tape you can fix it! :)

Take some photos of your home and family so you can look at them if you are feeling homesick! Also you may find a lot of people will get homesick so go and have a chat with some of them. I'm sure both of you will appreciate having someone to talk to!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

Do you get to take your own horse?

i know that when i go away (without my horses) i get extremely upset - up to the point where i get nasty (i know its bad) about people who tell me to stop being a wuuss. and i leave.

If you are taking your horse (which im guessing you might be???) then you probably wont get too homesick - i know i dont, i see the horse as a homelink... i agree with Crackrider as well, i take photos of my family with me - it does help.

Didnt they give you a list as to what you should be taking? like how the teachers used to attach a 'what to bring' list to the itinery on our school camp forms. ? Or are you just enquiring as to what you should be taking in case? oh well...i think im confusing myself - lol, anyway, Have a RIPPER of a time! good luck, and i hope you dont need that masking tape :P
