What is causing my foundation wall to sweat?

We had our crawl space under our house sprayed with closed cell insulation last fall. We live in Northern Michigan so it gets really cold in the winters. This summer it was a constant drip by our small window on our foundation wall. It has lasted all summer and now into the fall. I don't know how to solve this issue. Its only happening in a 10-12 ft section. Our house is on a hill down by the lake.  I really want to fix the issue before it gets really cold. I have had contractors say I need to dig on the outside of the house along my foundation and put foam board against the foundation wall. I wish I could show a picture of what it looks like on here. Any recomendations would be appreciated.
