Our Story
As soon as school got out, parents always asked childhood friends Imad and Chafik to help train their kids in soccer or basketball (and keep them busy, of course).
The two were always super passionate about helping localyouth stay active.
Then one day back in early 2017, before the summer slightlywarmed up the Bay Area, they started to wonder this:
Why don't the kids in our community have anything healthy to do in the summer?
The local community center was a gathering place for great cultural activities.
But it didn’t have the ability to facilitate and sustain on going programs for kids in a wholesome and enriching environment.
What happened next:
The worst flier ever was created on MS Paint (yep - all caps Arial font and drop shadows in full effect).
This glorious artwork was slapped anywhere and everywhere in our pocket of the Bay Area - a truly grassroots promotion effort.
The goal was to bring in 10 kids…but word spread and we had 97 sign-ups within a couple of weeks.
All of a sudden, this need to fill the gap of summer enrichment and local recreation for kids became a business.
Bamrec was born!
Fast forward today, we’re more than just a camp.
We’re providing hundreds of families in the Bay Area with options to keep kids active and enriched with year-round camps, field trips, after-school clubs, courses, and preschool.
Our passion remains for cultivating confidence, character and creativity in your children by offering a healthy environment and heartfelt experiences.
These values constantly live in our mind, and in practice:
Confidence
We seek to nurture and strengthen self-assurance within all youth—allowing for a more expansive mindset to grow and lead the future with.
Character
Our environment promotes integrity, kindness, and respect—empowering kids to choose these values while they are consistently led by example.
Creativity
We push ourselves to think freely—when there is no limit to curiosity and expression, it results in pure recreation and the ultimate FUN!
At Bamrec, we aim to be a source of whole some experiences and learning opportunities for the youth of our communities.
We’ve taken steps even further to make it more convenient for you to register your kids for our events, year-round with an easy-to-use mobile app.

Our Philosophy
We come to your children as a friend and mentor. We treat our youth with the respect and love that they need to flourish. With knowledge, experience, and relatability, we are able to create a bridge between the youth and parents of our communities to better help both groups with communication, expectations, and most importantly, growth. We cherish each soul we have the honor to meet and aim to cultivate a space that allows each and every individual to expand their impact on the world. We use Islamic Principles throughout our events and programs. We're here to create healthy environments.
    Let’s keep your kids healthy this summer.
