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.
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!
