In summer 2022, various Chinese media outlets shared promotional videos from the "War Wolves Special Training Camp" and the Huangpu Military Academy's "Special Training Summer Camp," which are Chinese summer camps that provide military training for children and youth. The children receive training in wilderness survival, martial arts, drone operations, military formations, and "counter-terrorism simulation operations."
