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, and this person is responsible for sharing camp information with the necessary parties.
