NBC won’t be going back to “Camp,” Variety has confirmed.

The Peacock has axed the summer camp dramedy created by Liz Heldens and Peter Elkoff after its first season pulled weak ratings throughout its run.

“Camp” was ordered straight to series at the beginning of the year and opened to 5 million viewers in July. That number, however, quickly dipped into the mid-3 million live viewership range for the majority of the show’s stay on the net. DVR use bumped the live numbers up some, but the program’s viewership still remained modest.

The finale of the first season pulled 3.2 million viewers and aired on Sept. 11.
