Only a few more days until the summer travel season is underway and I’ve already seen a bunch of hotels offering creative and fun packages that are perfect for families. Take a look at a few of my favorites that I know you’ll love.

Camp Omni: Omni Hotels & Resorts yesterday announced Camp Omni, a new summer family package with a variety of camp-themed amenities. Upon check-in, younger guests will receive s’mores-flavored marshmallows, a water bottle and a knapsack. Kids can also go on a scavenger hunt that will lead them to a merit badge, “dirt & worms” dessert and a $10 Camp Omni gift card. Sounds like so much fun!

Interested in Camp Omni? Omni Hotels & Resorts, in conjunction with Poshbrood and Ciao Bambino, are giving away several two-night stays at Omni properties. You have until June 1 to enter to win. Also, be sure to stop by the Camp Omni Summer Family Travel Chat on Twitter on Thursday, May 24 from 1-2 p.m. ET. From what I hear, there will be even more prizes (woo hoo!).

Preferred Family Hotels: I really like the Preferred Hotel Group because they have a Preferred Family certification program that qualifies their properties as not only appropriate, but fun, for families. For example, The Cloister at Sea Island offers cooking classes and spa services for kids, while The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island provides parents with a top-ten list of family activities on the island.

Summer Fun with Shrek & Friends: Back in March, I enjoyed a Family Fun Night with Shrek at the Gaylord National Resort. My girls absolutely loved it and now Gaylord Hotels is rolling out Summer Fun with Shrek & Friends on weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Kids will enjoy a family movie, character meet and greets, a scavenger hunt, a special wake-up call and a seat at the ShrekFeast. Certain properties also include character parades, pool parties and movies on the lawn.

Lions, Tigers & Cereal: If you’re headed to New York this summer, check into the Lions, Tigers & Cereal family offer at The Benjamin. You’ll get four tickets to the Central Park Zoo, a pre-stocked kitchenette with assorted cereals, a Frisbee and travel-sized sunscreen. You’ll also get to use kids robes, check out a bedtime library book and get a free Winks the Owl stuffed animal.
