What really happens at the annual Bohemian Grove Club retreat? Why is this event kept such a secret, and why aren’t women allowed in as full members? Some believe the official explanation but others read a conspiracy behind this group and their yearly meetings in the middle of a huge redwood forest. There are claims that these meetings are actually cult related, and that there are outdoor ceremonies and rituals that include the druid worship. Videos online seem to back up these claims, but there are few eyewitness reports and those are normally discredited by most people.
There have been many rumors and tales about what happens when the most powerful men in the country and around the globe get together for a few weeks every year, and some of these date back to the beginning of the club itself towards the end of the 1800s. There have been stories about secret rooms that are used to plan on who will become president in the future, and occult rituals have always been a topic of gossip where this camp is concerned.
One of the most frequent tales concerns Druid rituals, where the members wear hooded robes and and offer up an effigy to a gigantic owl statue. One of these rituals is called the Cremation of Care ritual and it has actually been filmed by a journalist named Alex Jones when he infiltrated the group. The significance of the ritual has been called small by some but very troubling by others, and the fact that women are not allowed to become full members has also fueled suspicion against the group.
What is known is that some of the most influential men in the world drink, pee in the bushes, and at times run around naked or dress up in female clothing as part of plays and productions. The official line is that this is simply a place where the richest males in the world can get away and relax, enjoying a men’s retreat among their actual peers and without being concerned that they are being watched by reporters.
Is this event just a boys will be boys way of letting off steam, or is it really a cover for a cult or top secret organization that worships nature and performs unspeakable acts in private? There have even been claims of human sacrifices and sexual abuse of children, but these are only rumors and this type of activity has never been proven.
