LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Five Boy Scout camps will be closing in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula by the end of the 2016 season.

Officials cite a number of reasons, including a chronic lack of use and the cost of maintenance. The camps are Greilick, near Traverse City; Kiwanis, near Lansing; Northwoods in Ogemaw County; Tapico in Kalkaska County; and Teetonkah in Jackson County.

The announcement was posted online Friday by the Michigan Crossroads Council, the group that oversees Boy Scout properties and programs in the Lower Peninsula.

The council still will have seven camps offering programs.
