Mom sues over son’s death at Colorado wilderness camp

SALT LAKE CITY ” The mother of a Salt Lake City boy has filed a lawsuit against a Colorado wilderness camp where her son died of a staph infection.

The mother, Dawn Boyd Woodson, alleges her son’s 2007 death could have been prevented if the staff of Alternative Youth Adventures had heeded medical warning signs.

A company attorney says operators of the former camp in Montrose, Colo., had a stellar reputation until 15-year-old Caleb Jensen’s death.

Attorney Colleen Scissors says a staph infection is not something that would have been obvious. She is defending West Caldwell, N.J.-based Community Education Centers Inc., AYA’s former corporate parent, against criminal charges filed by the Montrose County district attorney over Jensen’s death.

A trial is set for March.
