Scenic views, campfires and – could someone pass the blunt? Summer camp just got a whole lot more sophisticated with the opening of a new ranch-style, all-inclusive resort in Colorado that takes marijuana-friendly vacationing to new heights. Called CannaCamp, it is America’s first mountain getaway for adults that encourages guests to consume pot (legally, that is).
CannaCamp is expected to offer all the quintessential outdoor activities – hiking, fishing, horseshoes and marshmallow roasting – in addition to its less-traditional pursuits like cannabis cooking classes, high yoga and cannabis-infused massages. “We’re bringing an element of luxury to that adventurous, exploratory vibe of childhood summer camp, in a beautiful setting where visitors can enjoy marijuana in a safe, comfortable, social environment,” CannaCamp spokesman Joel Schneider told the Associated Press.
The ranch is set on 170 acres of pristine Colorado landscape in the San Juan Mountains. It is located in Durango, Colorado, about 300 miles southwest of Denver. Rates range from $395 to $449 per night, per person. Guests can expect rustic cabins, three on-site meals a day, and tons of beautiful greenery – trees and otherwise.
The resort was the brainchild of hospitality company Bud+Breakfast, which already manages two “bud and breakfasts” in the state – one in Denver and one in Silverthorne.
In the age of legal weed, it’s common for Colorado hotels to not allow guests to smoke pot on their premises, as public consumption remains illegal. But some companies like Bud+Breakfast actively cater to pot consumers. Colorado and Washington were the first states to legalize recreational marijuana in 2012 and opened their first pot shops last year.
CannaCamp is expected to open July 1 and is now accepting reservations for the summer, according to the ranch’s website. Click here to check availability and for booking information.
One thing to keep in mind is that it would still be illegal under Colorado law for the resort to give marijuana to its guests. Instead, visitors are allowed – and encouraged – to bring their own weed to use during their stay. A shuttle service from the local airport can whisk guests to a marijuana dispensary on their way to the ranch should they need to purchase more.
