The original founders can be pleased. In almost half a century, De Krim Texel has grown from a campsite in De Cocksdorp to a leisure company with 9 sites, spread across the island. A powerful player in the tourist sector, one that is of major economic importance to the island. De Krim Texel is currently the biggest provider of leisure facilities on Texel. What’s more, it is a sound organisation, with stable management, a healthy balance sheet and profits, and is a major Texel employer. A company where quality is paramount.
In 2020, N.V. Exploitatiemaatschappij De Krim is a thriving company. The management consists of a Supervisory Board and a Management Board consisting of four directors; general director Iwan Groothuis, commercial director Jolanda Kamphuis, operational director Yvette van Veen and financial director Bart van Tongeren.
De Krim Texel has grown significantly in recent years, both in turnover and in result. Our company has a unique ownership structure. A structure that guarantees independence with regard to our national competitors and with an eye for Texel society. Our continued focus on quality - in services, internal organisation, accommodations and employees - enables us to achieve growth and to exceed our guests’ expectations. We will continue to innovate and invest in order to maintain our unique position as an independent Texel company. Because it is precisely these factors that enable us to be loyal to our mission and to contribute to the development of Texel.
Our employees are the driving force behind De Krim Texel. They are passionate and aim for optimal guest satisfaction. That started as far back as 1969, when the first manager couple, Mr. and Mrs. Monen, ran camping De Krim together. This passion for hospitality continues to motivate Wilma, Rico, Manon, Frank, Mirjam, Maren, Linda and their more than 500 colleagues. The following values are paramount to the employees: ‘hospitable, independent and loyal.’ Together we are happy to put a big smile on our guests' faces!
What began with a small campsite has grown into a thriving organization with a very diverse range of operations throughout the island:
Texel residents and guests staying elsewhere are also welcome to make use of most of the facilities at Holiday Park De Krim. Such as the concerts in Evenementenhal Texel, the indoor swimming pool and the indoor children's playground.
A lot has happened in 50 years. Things did not always go smoothly. We often faced challenges. But our perseverance is strong. We are incredibly proud of the healthy organisation currently in place. We worked hard together on our 50-year journey, but mainly enjoyed many laughs and wonderful moments.

We have felt a responsibility for the island of Texel from the very beginning. Our memorandum of association literally states: ‘Their goal is to operate this site as a leisure facility and thus improve the livelihoods of the residents of Texel and Eierland in particular’. This philosophy is still very much alive. This is manifested, among other things, in the choice of suppliers, social personnel policy, support for social and cultural activities on Texel and investments in sustainability. Care for our environment: that is our "Love for Texel"
