    Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO is a key attendee of this year's secret-and-exclusive conference put on by Google at a golf resort in Sicily.

    Bohemian Grove? That's so Cold War. Try the Camp -- as in the Google Camp.

    Google has invited the rich, famous, and powerful to Sicily, where the coterie of bankers, investors, and doers will engage in "high-minded discussions of global issues," according to the New York Times.

    Oh, and chill on the beach, of course.

    Google is being quiet about the camp, refusing to comment and not publishing anything publicly about its party for the powerful, the Times reported. However, it's apparently an annual event that's been around for some time.

    Guests include Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd C. Blankfein, executives from German and Spanish banks, Uber chief Travis Kalanick, Tesla boss Elon Musk, Comcast CEO Brian L. Roberts and Snapchat boss Evan Spiegel.

    Also on hand is Ben Horowitz, venture capitalist with Marc Andreessen at make-or-break Silicon Valley fund Andreessen Horowitz.
