Summer Camp

Join us for a WILD Summer!

The Brandywine Zoo’s Summer Camp program is designed to provide children the opportunity to spend the summer outside at the Zoo learning about animals, zoos, and wildlife conservation. This enriching and educational experience will be filled with Zoo visits, live animal presentations, crafts, games, stories, learning projects, and much more! More importantly each child will learn the importance of having fun in nature and making new friends! Our camps are geared towards children who are eager to learn, follow directions, and want to have fun. Through our Summer Camp program we are hoping to inspire the next generation of wildlife conservationists and stewards of the environment.

We offer full-day and half-day, week-long camps! Click on the camps below for descriptions.
