For “cabin” camps, not at all. Just register, pack a bag, bring a pillow & blanket, and show up to camp. All meals and activities are provided there. For “tent” camps, you will need to bring a tent & sleeping gear, and be ready to feed yourself. However, if you are a rookie, you will be surrounded by experienced dads who are happy to help. It may seem intimidating if you haven’t done it, but it will be an amazing experience with your kids.
