DUMFRIES, Va. – An organization dedicated to bettering childrens lives is helping members of the Boys and Girls Club inDumfries. 

Coach Michael Futrell along with his wife, Dr. Bernadine Futrell, are the founders and directors of the Make The Future Basketball camp held Aug. 27 – 31 at the General Heiser Boys and Girls Club in Dumfries.

The organization is in its third year of operation and serves many of Boys and Girls Club members here at the General Heiser Branch, and also the other Boys and Girls Club branches in Northern Virginia.

The camp ranges from children in elementary to high school, with high school students serving as volunteer camp counselors throughout the week of camp.

Coach and Dr. Futrell are great advocates for the Boys and Girls Club, and you can always catch them at one of our many events volunteering their time.

The futures of the next generation are very important to the Futrell’s. They not only display that in words, but in actions as well.

For more information on the camp and their work, you can find it on the web at make-the-future.org.
