I must admit, I’m a little disappointed with the recent news of MaryJane Group breaking ties with with the family who promised them that CannaCamp would be able to operate as normal given that the land was sold to new owners. It almost feels as if Mary Jane Group put the cart before the horse in promoting CannaCamp. In concept, CannaCamp would’ve become the mecca for outdoor/pot enthusiast from around the world.
Approximately 6 hours away from Denver, lies the small town of Durango. Durango started off as a premier mining town and has turned into a tourist destination for year around outdoor activities. Durango is haven for mountain bikers, hikers, campers, kayakers, rock climbers, and really anyone who loves the outdoors. Durango, was the ideal location for CannaCamp and now what seemed as a promising travel destination for marijuana enthusiasts is possibly, a dream/concept that will fade away with time. Deep down, I hope that They MaryJane Group finds an alternative location to bring CannaCamp into existence.
CannaCamp website is still live and I can’t help but quote what MaryJane Group wanted CannaCamp to be.
“CannaCamp offers awe-inspiring vistas, daily adventures, rest and relaxation, and unpretentious hospitality at a secluded mountain resort. We offer guests an unprecedented opportunity to learn about and experience the outdoors and cannabis in a save, comfortable, and social environment. CannaCamp is more than a place, it is an opportunity to be part of a rare experience and the new Colorado Legacy.”
Outdoor and Cannabis Activities
CannaCamp’s would have been a 170 acre resort that offered popular outdoor activities such as, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, ziplining, and water activities, as well as Cannabis activities such as:
- Cooking with Cannabis
- Cannabis Education Classes
- Cannabis Yoga
- Cannabis-Friendly Painting Classes
- Cannabis-Infused Massage Therapy
- Cannabis Pairing Dinners
- Glass Blowing Demonstrations
- 4:20 Community Hour
CannaCamp would have included the best meals in their rates. Serving big breakfasts, varied lunches, exceptional dinners, hors d’oeuvres filled happy hours, and delicious desserts. Their meals ranged from gourmet to ranch fare, plenty of hearty and healthy options, as well as vegetarian, low-carb, gluten-free, or other special dietary needs. A few of CannaCamp meals:
- Black Angus Prime Rib Au Jus, Blackened Salmon, Rosemary Potatoes, Assorted Salads, Fresh Baked Bread, Banana Pecan Cake.
- Fillet of Elk, Soup Duet, Shrimp Sciliano Bread, Rice Pilaf, Sautéed Seasonal Vegetables, Chocolate Tarragon Cake with Raspberry.
- “Cowboy Rub” Rib-Eye Steak, Fish Filet, Twice-Baked Potatoes, Grilled Corn on the Cob, Ranch Beans, Garden Salad, Vanilla Cream Pie.
- Pork Loin with Green Chili Sauce, Roasted Corn Tamales, Tortilla Soup, Chipotle-Gouda, Smashed Potatoes, Tuaca Zabaglione.
- Chicken Caesar Sandwich, Beer Cheese Soup, Chips, Fruit Salad, Sorbet.
CannaCamp’s would have had a bar that offered a selection of beer from local breweries, wine from nearby vineyards, and sprites from coveted mountain distilleries.
The Future of CannaCamp??
Originally, CannaCamp first VIP guests were supposed to arrive July 1st and since their deal fell through. MaryJane Group is offering customers who already made reservations the option of staying at one of their Bud+Breakfast locations.
“A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” -B.F. Skinner.
Lets hope that this minor setback, is just that a, setback and that the MaryJane Group still has plans for CannaCamp!
