Pensionada Tent Builder

Minimum of 24 hours
Construction team
Oct 20, 2023

Are you retired and enjoy working with your hands outside. Then you are most welcome to come and help us build tents for a few weeks! Since the start of our company, we have worked with a number of people over 60 who regularly accompany us on our tent-building projects.

About us

Vodatent has been renting out safari tents since 2014 and, with over 1000 accommodations in more than ten different countries, has become one of the largest glamping companies in the Netherlands. Glamping (glamorous camping) is the fastest growing form of turnkey camping that is in increasing demand. With our own brand Safarilodgetent we supply about 200 safari tents per year, we are also dealer of Yala Canvas Lodges, Europe's largest manufacturer of glamping tents.

What will you do?

As a pensionado tent builder, you will be part of one of our construction teams and will build safari tents. We work a lot with wood and much of the work involves screwing and sawing decking and tent frames. Once the tent is up we also often provide the furnishings, this is frequently with wooden walls and plumbing. Often during a project we stay at campsites where you get board and lodging, so you are regularly a few days away from home.

What we ask

If you have a little do it yourself experience and are handy, you will soon learn how we place safari tents and you can quickly join our construction team. 
You are available for at least four weeks between February and May and can easily be away from home during the week.
If you are social and sociable, this will come in handy when we have drinks and play cards in the evening.

What we offer

  • A fun experience with great colleagues
  • Salary and regular board and lodging at campsites where you build tents
  • Projects at home and abroad
  • Discount if you want to rent a tent somewhere yourself
