Michigan, offered swimming, horseback riding, climbing, and other outdoor
Highlights of this year's camp included songs sung by national delegations around the campfire, a candlelight ceremony with small decorated boats from each country, and the planting of a peace pole at the closing ceremony.

Colours of Life III - 'Thumbprints in Time' : For the third consecutive year, CPAA brings to you "Colours of Life" an art exhibition and sale of paintings by over 100 renowned artists for the cause of children with cancer. The theme of the event this year is "Thumbprints in Time". Children use all kinds of mediums, colours and tools to express themselves-paper and walls; paints, pastels, pencils, brushes and even parts of their bodies, especially fingers. This is especially poignant in the case of a child lost to cancer when these prints become the closest personal memory left of the child.
The paintings range from Rs. 50,000 - Rs. 5 Lakhs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your complete mailing address if you wish to receive an invite to the exhibition to be held at Cymroza Art Gallery from 6 - 11 August 2007.
