They didn't want intervention from others and to just be able to compromise among themselves.
The Constitutional Convention took place in Philadelphia from May 25 to September 17, 1787. The delegates met at the Pennsylvania State House. Due to travel difficulties and long distances, not all of the delegates were present during the early meetings.
These were called committee meetings during the Constitutional Convention.
The Constitutional Convention meetings were held in secret. Word of the many conflicts and disagreements could not get back to the various states and create additional demands by state legislators.

Constitutional delegates adopted a rule of secrecy for two mail reasons. They thought if no notes were taken, they could have a more free and unbiased discussion among themselves. Also, they wanted to prevent the misunderstandings that occur when things are discussed by the public in bits and pieces. They wanted people to see the finished product with fresh eyes.
Voters who have registered a political party affiliation in a district (closed caucus) or Any Registered Voter in a district (open caucus) may vote for the 15 delegates and alternates from that district that will proceed to the state convention. In a private meeting, members of political parties (ie: Democrats, Republicans, etc.) select representatives for a nominating convention through speeches, discussions and meetings. -Or- "a private meeting of members of a political party to plan action or to select delegates for a nominating convention." On the other hand, during a primary you simply cast your vote. A primary does not include meetings or speeches like a caucus does.
