    This is the test skate, they show their program to officials, it is always early September, the junior test events have already happened a couple of weeks ago.

    Is it sort of like the US's Champs Camp? Is it by invitation only?

    I dont know how it works with Champs Camp. The last few years I m following, I know test skates in Russia is for a week in September, it is maybe open for public or at least with accredition and the skaters that are named to national team show either their new programs or just their condition to RF officials. Maybe AxelRus knows a lot more.
    This is a channel that has last years test skates.

    And these are photos of juniors test skates although I think they have more from 20 Aug.

    The article says that spectators will pay a really low price, so I'm assuming that the public can watch.
    Unless you mean skaters being invited - I'm not sure about that.
    Super excited to see Bobrova and Soloviev's FD! I'm also excited to see how they've fleshed out their SD which I found very promising.

    The test skates next week are closed to the public, but the ones in September will be open to the public.
