Our Programs



Cub Scout Pack 2000
Cub Scout Pack 2000 was chartered by the Bear Creek Foundation in the Spring of 2011. Thanks to Cub Master Todd Tolan and a group of dedicated volunteers, Scouting has returned to the Bear Creek Community! Participation in Cub Scout Pack 2000 is open to any boy in first through fifth grade, regardless of where they reside or attend school. The Pack consists of Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos.

All Pro Dad
Attention Dads! Team up with other Bear Creek Community Charter School Dads and their children for a quick, before school breakfast and 45 minute program of fatherhood and family topics. You'll take away great tips and resources to help you be the best Dad you can be, and you'll strengthen your relationship with your kids at the same time. It's fun and it's free!

The All Pro Dads Breakfast is generally held the last Thursday of each month from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. in the Dining Hall of Bear Creek Community Charter School.

There are currently 931 All Pro Dad's Day Chapters at public schools in 48 states in nine countries, where more than 40,000 fathers and their kids gather on a regular basis to discuss topics like peer pressure, goal setting, and caring for the less fortunate.

Community Easter Egg Hunt
In March 2008, the Bear Creek Foundation coordinated the first Community Easter Egg Hunt at the Bear Creek Recreation Park, and every year since the event has grown bigger and better! This year's Bear Creek Community Children's Egg Hunt will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at Bear Creek Community Charter School, 30 Charter School Way in Bear Creek Township.

The egg hunts for children ages infant to six years old will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. The egg hunts for children ages seven to eleven will begin at 10:45 a.m. Various prizes will be awarded, and each egg will contain a surprise! Children will also have the opportunity to meet the Easter Bunny and free lunch will be provided from 11:00 a.m. to Noon.

The event is free and open to the general public, regardless of where you live or attend school. Advance registration is required. The event is sponsored by local business and families, and is a collaborative effort with Bear Creek Township and the Bear Creek Volunteer Hose Company. Nearly 250 children participate in the event, which is free and open to the general public - regardless of residence.

The Bear Creek Foundation extends a heartfelt thanks to the sponsors, volunteers and parents who continue to support this great event!

Community Halloween Party
The Bear Creek Foundation is the primary sponsor of the annual Community Halloween Party, in cooperation with the Bear Creek Community Charter School's National Junior Honor Society. The Party provides a safe, family-friendly atmosphere to enjoy Halloween festivities. Last year's Party attracted nearly 200 children and their families. As part of the Community Halloween Party, children enjoy games, food and fill up a sack of treats to take home. The event is open to the general public.

Baseball Field Upgrade (2010)
The Bear Creek Foundation was proud to partner with Bear Creek Baseball and Bear Creek Township in making the necessary upgrades to the baseball field at the Bear Creek Township Recreational Field, to resolve the issue of ponding water following rainfall. Returning the field to a usable condition was important in ensuring our children have a safe play to enjoy themselves. A special thanks to all the volunteers to "stepped up to the plate" and provided the labor to get the job done. Play ball!

Community Soccer Field (2008)
In the Spring of 2008, the Bear Creek Foundation was approached by Bear Creek Township Supervisor Joseph Masi with a vision to create an additional soccer field at Bear Creek Recreation Park to support the extra-curricular needs of the students of Bear Creek Community Charter School, as well as the recreational needs of the surrounding community. The goal was to create the new field without using tax dollars. Mr. Masi and the Bear Creek Township Board of Supervisors reached out to others in support of this endeavor, and working together, the new soccer field was completed and is now available for use by the School and the community.

Computer Laboratory (2008)
In July 2008, the Bear Creek Foundation purchased a custom-built modular classroom to replace an outdated modular classroom on the charter school campus. In support of the school's innovative curriculum, the new modular unit was equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including twenty-six new Dell ultra-small form desktop computers with flat panel monitors, an interactive Promethean ActivBoard and associated software, and other multi-media technologies. This investment will help ensure students attending Bear Creek Community Charter School continue to receive a high-quality public education.

Community Playground Project (2007)
The Bear Creek Foundation partnered with the Bear Creek Community Charter School, KaBOOM!, The Home Depot, and Joe Gibbs Racing to create a new shared play space on the grounds of the Bear Creek Community Charter School for use by students as well as children in the community. This is the only public playground in the LiewellynCorners section of Bear Creek Township, and was constructed in one day by an all-volunteer crew with private contributions.
