DURANGO, Colo. (AP) — Colorado is full of all-inclusive ranch resorts where guests hike, fish, play horseshoes and roast marshmallows. This one has a new offering — smoking pot.

The 170-acre CannaCamp opening July 1 in Durango in southwest Colorado calls itself the nation’s first cannabis-friendly ranch resort.

Guests won’t be given marijuana, because that violates state law. Instead, the resort allows guests to bring their own pot and use it while at the resort.

“We couldn’t be the first cannabis resort and not offer a thoughtfully developed list of cannabis-related activities!” the resort’s website stated. “Our partnership with Cultivating Spirits gives CannaCamp guests a unique opportunity to participate in a wide range of programs that promote creativity, education, health, and communication.”

In addition to horseshoes and hiking, guests have access to ‘cooking with cannabis’ sessions, cannabis education classes, cannabis yoga, cannabis-friendly painting classes, cannabis-infused massage therapy and more.

“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,” Joel Schneider, head of the management group opening CannaCamp, said in a statement.

Guests stay in cabins that allow smoking on porches but not inside. Rates start at $395 per person per night.
