About BARC


Dear Residents,

Welcome to the Bel Air Recreation Committee! Take some time to explore our Community youth and adult programs. The Bel Air Recreation Committee serves over 10,000 participants each year, and we are committed to providing the highest quality programs and events to the community.

The Recreation office is located within the McFaul Recreation Center. Our Board of Directors, along with hundreds of volunteers, help us accomplish our mission of “providing a value for the quality of life through programs, activities and services for the Bel Air community”

We wanted to thank you for your continued support and participation. This is an exciting time for the Bel Air Recreation Committee, and we are proud to be a part of it. We have responded to the ever-changing needs of Bel Air by providing many new programs. We offer over 40 programs annually for participants of all ages, and they fill quickly so make sure to register early. We have also added several new Special Events for the entire family to enjoy.

The needs of the community may have changed over the years, but the one constant is the spirit of volunteerism within Bel Air. We are always impressed and extremely grateful for the amount of residents who generously donate their time. If you have ever coached a team, acted as an official, performed, played or sang, or assisted at any one of our events…we thank you!
