The U of T Camp is located on the northern shore of Gull Lake near Minden, Ontario. In operation since 1920, the facility is used to train undergraduate Civil and Mineral Engineering students in the art and science of land surveying and engineering project management.  CIV201H1 - Introduction to Civil Engineering, also uses this unique facility.

At Camp, students obtain extensive hands-on experience in the use of land surveying instruments and in the essentials of survey practice. Measurements of distances and angles, survey calculations, sources of error, and corrections and adjustments are introduced. Application exercises include route surveys, topographic mapping, and construction surveying. Concepts of higher order survey techniques and global positioning systems are reviewed and illustrated. Students attend Survey Camp split into two week camps prior to the start of Third Year Fall Session.

*Camp was historically called "Survey Camp" as surveying was the greatest component. The format has expanded considerably over the last century to include much more relevant content, so the reference to surveying has been dropped.
