On Saturday, September 7 attendees celebrated a century of Survey Camp at Dorset and Gull Lake. With a fantastic turnout of Alumni, current students, Faculty and interested family members, the event showcased existing facilities at Gull Lake and marked a ceremonial groundbreaking for a planned new HCAT bunkhouse and MacGillivray Common Room.

The event marked the 100th class since the first group of University of Toronto Engineering students used the site, located on the north shore of Gull Lake near Minden, Ont. Purchased in 1919, the first cohort of U of T students took classes on the site in 1920, with the current 2019 class becoming the 100th consecutive year to attend Survey Camp – now known as Civil And Mineral Practicals (CAMP). The centennial celebrations included recognition of the many alumni and supporters who have contributed to the Centennial Campaign for Camp, helping the camp to reach 70% of a $1.5 million goal. Donors are also gratefully acknowledged on the campaign website and through bunkbed, bench and room dedications.
