the Bohemian Club

Bohemian Grove is a 2,700-acre campground located in Monte Rio, California, belonging to a private San Francisco-based men’s art club known as the Bohemian Club. The club, which was formed in 1872, is a place where members can relax and network with each other in a secluded natural setting. The club’s membership is exclusively male and includes artists, business leaders, and politicians, many of whom are high-ranking officials. The club is known for its annual summer retreats at the Bohemian Grove, where members participate in a variety of activities such as music, theater, and speeches. The club’s retreats have been the subject of much media attention and controversy, with some critics alleging that the club’s members engage in elitist and exclusive behavior at the retreats.
