CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire summer camp that was canceled last year because of an infestation of bed bugs will reopen this summer, but with fewer scholarships being offered.

The Concord Monitor reports (https://bit.ly/1uJtBAc) the cabins and grounds have been renovated at Camp Spaulding in Penacook.

The bugs were found in two cabins in July. Managers decided the camp should undergo extensive treatment, including replacing bed frames, sealing the floors and walls, and steam cleaning.

The camp is owned by the Manchester-based nonprofit Child and Family Services, but it will now be operated by the YMCA of Greater Nashua. Part of the rent it will pay to the Manchester organization will go toward future improvements at the camp.

As part of the arrangement, only half of the 240 campers will receive scholarships.
