about Brandywine Zoo:
The zoo's education department offers a wealth of programs for all ages. Bring a group on a Discovery Tour, where kids can learn about an age-appropriate topic by visiting animals and doing hands-on projects. Call the education curator at 302.571.7850, ext. 208 to book a tour. Or, let the zoo do the traveling: a traveling zoo is available to visit groups of kids (not in private homes or at birthday parties) from March through December. Call 302.571.7850, ext. 224 for more information.
Children are invited to spend some wild summer days at the zoo camp. A mini day camp is available for children ages four to six during the month of June, and older children can sign up for week-long sessions in July and August. Check the website for details, and be sure to register early.
A family or household membership includes admission to the zoo for up to two adults and up to four other individuals under age 18; four guest passes; subscription to the zoo magazine; 10% discount in the zoo store; reduced rates for educational programs; and invitations to members-only events.
The zoo also has a snack bar and gift shop. Parking is free and lots are across from the zoo in Brandywine Park just off of North Park Drive. Handicap spaces can be found mid-way up Van Buren Street behind the education building.
