Sounds like you already have a good start on the tool kit.
if you're going to be doing any green woodworking you
may want a drawknife.

If you will be woodworking outdoors consider picking up
a couple of dog augers (tie-out stakes) and a ratchet strap.
I use this for my portable bench and pole lathe, to basically
tie the bench solidly to the ground.

A shaving pony to attach to your bench is a great accessory
for green woodwork.  Since you are camping I assume you
may end up using a lot of found wood or firewood so the
coarse tools like froe, hatchet and drawknife will come in
handy.
