The v. Bodelschwingh Foundation Bethel in Bielefeld is an organisation for unaccompanied and separated children and youth, supporting 150 young people at present. Together with the department at Bethel, the Bertelsmann Stiftung piloted three one-week language camps for the summer and autumn holidays in 2016. During the camps, young people received intensive language training. A diverse range of leisure activities with workshops focusing on German, sport and excursions were part of the camp programme.
