The Rosendin Foundation, a non-profit committed to positively impacting communities and empowering individuals, announced the return of TRF Camp Build, a program designed to ignite the joy of building in middle school students.

After the resounding success of its inaugural year, TRF Camp Build is back in the Phoenix area for the second consecutive year, taking place from June 3-7, a press release stated.

TRF Camp Build is a free co-ed day camp tailored for current 6th to 8th graders. The camp offers an immersive hands-on experience, providing participants with valuable skills that extend beyond the program’s duration, the release detailed

Under the expert guidance of skilled professionals, students will engage in a variety of activities, including personal safety training, concrete and rebar work, soldering, pipe bending, Building Information Modeling and more, exposing participants to an appreciation for building and a spectrum of careers.

“As we gear up for the second year of TRF Camp Build, we’re eager to welcome both new and familiar faces. We’re excited about the opportunity to witness the enthusiasm of fresh minds and the return of dedicated participants,” Jolsna Thomas, president of The Rosendin Foundation, stated in the release.

Throughout the program, students will actively learn by working on interactive projects, such as wiring lamps, pouring concrete for stepping stones and building doghouses. The doghouse will ultimately be donated to the local community, allowing participants to apply their newfound skills while making a positive impact, according to the release.

“TRF Camp Build serves as a gateway for middle school students in Phoenix to embark on a journey where they will discover the joy of building through hands-on experiences within a safe and nurturing environment,” Thomas stated.

TRF Camp Build is actively seeking sponsors to further enhance its impactful initiatives. The program has already garnered substantial support from notable contributors, including Rosendin, MPS, United Rentals, the Arizona Chapter of NECA and the Arizona Building & Construction Trades Council.

To participate in the 2024 TRF Camp Build program or to become a sponsor, register by March 31.
