Young guests staying in the Trek-in Cabins will get to meet a very special holiday friend: Simon Stork (in Dutch: Otto Ooievaar). In a fun and playful way, the character teaches children the meaning of sustainability, as well as introducing them to the sustainable aspects of the Trek-in Cabin and showing them how to be sustainable at home. Young Trek-in guests get the opportunity to get to know their sustainable holiday pal.

To find out more about Simon, be sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter. or read his message for kids below.

OTTO DEF Web GrootHi!

My name is Simon Stork, a friendly, adventurous and streetwise bird. My nest is made from natural resources, as I believe anything can be recycled and turned into something new. That’s why I don’t like it when people throw out perfectly good stuff that they could just as easily use again. And it’s also why I like hanging around the Trek-in, which is made completely from recycled materials! Besides, if the Trek-in Cabin or my stork’s nest gets taken down, you’ll be able to use all the materials again: we call that “Cradle to Cradle.”

For me, the world is just one big playground: you can romp around and have all kinds of adventures: in the forest, on the campsite, in the village and in the city. What I like best is playing with children. I love telling you stories about nature. I’m always on the go, since that way I get to meet as many kids as possible. You can recognise me by my blue knapsack, in which I always carry a map and a camera. That way, I’m sure I’ll never lose my way and can share my travel pictures with anyone I come across.

Will I see get to see you in the Trek-in Cabin soon? I really hope so!
Safe travels,

Simon Stork
