The individual who submits the application to host a camp is, by default, the camp coordinator for that camp. This person will act as the organization's single point of contact throughout the camp season. All camp-related emails (including the demo software download links) are sent to the camp coordinator only, and this person is responsible for sharing any pertinent camp information with the necessary parties.
