Many youth in China are allegedly suffering from Internet addiction, and the government is turning to boot camps to try and fix the problem.

A typical Internet boot camp in China involves intense physical training and psychological counseling, as well as the prescription of drugs if doctors consider it necessary.

Reuters photos show some of the activities kids go through at the camps, and it looks pretty wild.
