Insulation for walkout basement

First time poster. I have a walkout basement where the front wall and the 2 side walls are poured concrete. The back walkout wall is wood except where the side poured walls wrap around about 6 feet. This is where my moisture problem is. Those two exposed concrete corners get moisture on them, but none of the other walls do. I am looking to finish the basement but dont know how to insulate them without getting any mold. I was thinking of using closed cell foam insulation. The outside of those walls have nothing on them and if I install insulation on the outside than that wouldn't line up with my vinyl siding. So I would like to leave them alone on the outside. Also I live in Michigan where we have very cold winters.

Thanks for any help.
