Bare feet and sandals go hand-in-hand with summer camp, right?! But when you head out on a hike, get a game going on the basketball court, or enjoy a cool night by the fire, you’re going to need more warmth, protection, and support. The Kids’ Hike Full Cushion Striped Crew Sock from Smartwool is perfect for the job!

Of course you’re going to send your camper with some cotton socks—who isn’t? But make sure they have a couple pair of nice wool socks as well! Some camps even specify to include wool. This Hiking Crew Sock is constructed with an elasticized arch brace to provide support and remain in place. Its flat knit toe seam adds extra comfort. And, with all-over cushioning, this crew sock is extra-durable, and offers warmth along with protection!

The Smartwool Story

Smartwool is a little ski-town brand founded by Peter and Patty Duke—ski instructors who moved in 1994 from the East Coast to Steamboat, Colorado. “That first year in Steamboat was the coldest my feet have ever been,” Peter was quoted in an Outdoor Retailer article from 2017. “I literally poured water out of my boots at the end of the day! A friend and I made some merino socks, and after that my feet were the warmest they’ve ever been, and they were absolutely dry. That’s when the lightbulb went off.”

Smartwool socks are made to last many adventures into the future, but when you DO eventually wear these socks out, they decompose within a few years so they’re not sitting forever in a landfill. Smartwool socks are completely biodegradable. Like us at Everything Summer Camp, the outdoors means everything to Smartwool. Our whole existence is based in helping folks spend time outside. That’s why Smartwool practices ethical sourcing and sustainable manufacturing using natural and recycled wool.

Happy sheep make for happy customers, which is why Smartwool works to ensure that the Merino sheep whose wool they shear live happy, peaceful lives in their natural habitat. Coming off the sheep greasy, the wool is cleaned, combed, and spun into yarn which is then made into amazing Smartwool products, available right here for the comfort of campers’ rambling feet! High-performing and uncompromisingly comfortable, Smartwool socks are an excellent choice for the active camper!

Go far. Feel good.

Why Wool?

It may sound like torture to wear wool on your feet, but that’s because you’re thinking of the itchy sweater your Grandma knitted for you. That’s a different type of wool than Smartwool. Smartwool uses responsibly-sourced Merino wool which consists of a much thinner and softer fiber. It isn’t itchy at all. In fact, it’s insanely soft, unbelievably breathable, and completely comfortable!

Wool in the Summer?

You may think wool would only be for keeping you warm but that isn’t always the case. In fact, some campers prefer to ONLY wear wool socks since they keep your feet a comfortable temperature—warm when it’s cold out and cool in the heat. Wool actually works by regulating your body temperature. Smartwool socks are made of a thinner wool that is anti-odor and moisture-wicking to keep your feet feeling cool even in the thick of the summer season.

Get Smart About Your Socks!

Thanks to the nature of this ‘miracle fiber’, Smartwool socks are naturally antibacterial, resist odor, and wick moisture away. For that reason, these socks don’t require washing after each use. You know your child. They MIGHT just grab the SAME pair of socks from yesterday! If they’re just going to wear the same socks again, make sure they’re Smartwool. The whole cabin will appreciate socks that don’t stink!
