CLUBS WITHIN A CLUB

When you think of a country club, you think formal, rigid, stuffy, old fashion.  When you say The Club at Boca Pointe, you say youthful, energetic, fun, clubs within a club, plenty to do. A place where you can literally define your own lifestyle!

That’s right! The Club at Boca Pointe is not your typical “father’s or grandfather’s country club”.  It is a club for the “Happening” people.

Yes, Boca Pointe has the traditional golf course, tennis, athletic center, but that’s where the “traditional” ends.

Currently, seven special interest clubs within The Club at Boca Pointe enable members to share their like-interests with other members.  These “unique” interests cut through a cross-section of the club’s membership. All members whether equity or premier members are encouraged to define their own lifestyle by participating in these activities.

“These clubs are designed to further build friendship where people of like interests can meet and share experiences,” says Helen Karpel, General Manager of the “happening” Club at Boca Pointe.  “Whenever people of like interests can get together it just strengthens relations and helps build new friendships. In addition, we have two other groups that create and hold events for their audiences, Boomers and Boca Unos.”

The biggest club on campus is the Adventurers Club made up of more than 200 members.  Created in the 1990s, the Adventurers Club is dedicated to creating events that members would not normally undertake on their own or through the traditional club activities.

For example, how many members would ordinarily journey to Shark Valley, deep in the Florida Everglades or deliver “holiday presents” to the animals at the Miami Zoo or take a special behind-the-scenes tour of the new Miami Marlin Stadium? Probably none, but that is what being in the Adventurers Club gets you.

Then there is the Scam Troupe, founded and produced by Harriet Rubin.  The Scam Troupe is a performing group of members of the Cub at Boca Pointe that presents skits about “scams” that face senior citizens.  The troupe has performed all over Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County at various locations. The Scam Troupe has been the subject of many articles and has been covered on television internationally.

In addition to the Adventurers Club and Scam Troupe, today there is a Camera Club, Volunteer Club, Yiddish Club and Creative Writing.
