Sherman, Texas -- The Rosendin Foundation, a dedicated 501(c)(3) non-profit committed to positively impacting communities and empowering individuals, announces the return of TRF Camp Build, a transformative 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 Sherman for the second consecutive year, taking place on Saturday, May 18, 2024.

TRF Camp Build is a unique, free co-ed electrical mini-day camp tailored for current 6th-8th graders. Hosted at Modular Power Solutions, 3007 Fallon Dr, Sherman, TX 75090, the camp offers an immersive hands-on experience, providing participants with valuable skills that extend beyond the program's duration. Space is limited; parents can register their middle schoolers for an exciting day of construction, skill-building, and fun. The deadline for registration is March 31, 2024. Under the expert guidance of skilled professionals, students will acquire vital building skills, including using power tools safely, building a lamp that they can take home, and exploring potential career paths in the growing industrialized construction industry under the guidance of skilled professionals.

"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," says Jolsna Thomas, President of The Rosendin Foundation. “This camp is a unique opportunity for us to continue building not only structures but also lasting connections with the young minds of the future workforce. We look forward to inspiring and empowering each participant on their journey of discovery and growth."

Throughout the program, students will actively learn by working on interactive projects, such as operating hand and power tools, bending conduits, virtually building and estimating using Building Information Modeling (BIM), and wiring lamps that they will get to take home.

"TRF Camp Build serves as a gateway for middle school students in Texas to embark on a journey where they will discover the joy of building through hands-on experiences within a safe and nurturing environment. Investment in educating and training our future builders is paramount for the sustained success of the construction industry and society generally,” says Thomas.

“Our goal is to ignite a passion that transcends stereotypes, encouraging students to explore diverse career opportunities aligned with their individual interests, ultimately shaping a more inclusive and innovative future for the entire industry."

TRF Camp Build is actively seeking sponsors to further enhance its impactful initiatives. The program has already garnered substantial support from notable contributors, including Patron-level sponsors Rosendin and MPS, Diamond-level sponsor United Rentals, Silver-level Sponsor Vertiv / Electrical Reliability Services, and Bronze-level sponsor Hubbell. In addition, valuable in-kind donors such as Milwaukee Tools, Border States, and Graybar have generously contributed to the program's success.

The Rosendin Foundation, an advocate for community well-being, supports various non-profit organizations across the country that focus on emotional, nutritional, and occupational health programs.

To participate in the 2023 TRF Camp Build program or to become a sponsor, register by the deadline of March 31, 2024. Limited spots are available, and detailed information about the program and the application process can be found at
