The doors have closed forever at a Presbyterian camp on Lake Michigan, a story first reported last week by the Eyewitness News I-Team.

Presbyterian Church leaders voted in favor of selling the camps in Saugatuck, Michigan.

The property is being sold to pay off loans used to settle sex abuse claims involving Douglas Mason.

He was accused of molesting four boys while director of a South Side ministry during the 1990s.

A Michigan land developer will pay $10 million for the property.
