OUR HISTORY

Murray Goldwag, affectionately known as “Murray the Sockman”, is a natural people person and salesman who started selling homemade stained glass creations at crafts fairs and flea markets in 1972.

Murray gradually shifted his focus to socks, clothing and accessories and in 1987 opened the store “Kosher Socks” together with Meryl, his business and life partner. Located in South Fallsburg, NY, the store is still a hub of activity every summer.

In 1991, Murray and Meryl pioneered the “camp sale” model, in which they partner with various schools in the greater NY area and sell camp products on-location, with a percentage of sales going to the school.

In 2017, Murray’s daughter Melissa and her husband Gaby launched the online store, Pack for Camp, making Murray's goods available to a broader audience and revolutionizing the way parents shop for camp.

PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

Our partner camps have a dedicated home page on our site that includes a  smart packing list. When we create your camp's smart packing list, we map all the unique items on your camp's packing list to the items we sell on our website, allowing parents to add what they need in one click.

We also build our partners logo wear stores, where campers can order a whole range of customized camp clothing and accessories delivered to their doorstep or to camp.

Joining our partnership program is FREE OF CHARGE and there are no set up or maintenance fees for creating the home page and logo wear store.

Our partnership program is also a unique fundraising opportunity as your camp receives a commission on the sales that you refer to our website. (Schools and organizations can join too.)

Contact us for more details about joining our partnership program.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

"I shopped all my kids' camp supplies needs from Murray the Sockman, from the canvas duffel bags to tzitzit to swimcaps to, of course, socks! Great prices, durable quality, friendliest vendor!"

Pesha Rubinstein

"We received our order today and were very, very, pleased!...When I think of all the price shopping I did on other items I had already bought, It would have been so much more pleasant to simply order it all from you and still feel good about the prices. Thanks again for everything."

Arline Pelton

"Love Pack for Camp by Murray the Sockman. Bought a duffel at a boutique and experienced an issue that was resolved immediately and with the utmost courtesy. I will definitely be buying more merchandise from this company because it's very clear that it prides itself on quality and integrity."
