Have you ever wanted to go to the Indianapolis 500?

How about the 50th anniversary of Woodstock?

Contentment Camping might be the ticket.

“It's a really fun way to spend your summer,” Owner, Patricia Jensen said.

Contentment Camping provides glamorous camping, or “glamping” tents for events across the country. “They can sleep in a real bed and have a lot of the amenities that a hotel might have.”

Jensen needs 25 to 30 workers this summer to help with tent assembly and tear down.

“We put it up we take it down. And then we move on to the next, and that happens just about every weekend. They must be able to work outside. They must be able to lift 50 lbs. So, they're going to be helping us set up hundreds of tents over the course of the weekend.”

Events run from April to October.

Contentment Camping pays $12 an hour. Travel, lodging, and event admission is also all covered.

Hours vary but Jensen said you're guaranteed at least 15 hours a week.

Workers can choose to work at specific events as well. “Say that you're excited to see the Bonnaroo concert. We need people for that. They can apply for that one event, and we will let you know.”
