We recently attended an over-night group session at Adrenaline as part of a Boy Scout Merit badge training. We had a total of 31 boys attend, and everyone loved it. The group from Adrenaline handled all the training, were well staffed, kept thing engaging and completely safe for the boys. While we had a large group and it can be tough to keep everyone moving forward, there were times where they would pull individual boys aside to work on the knot tying to give them the 1:1 assistance they needed. After the training completed (roughly from 8:30-11:30, the boys had time to climb on their own. We shut things down at around 1AM to keep things safe and get some sleep for everyone.
I would highly recommend this as an outing for Scouts, youth groups, etc. To get them climbing and belaying independently you'll want them to be around 12 or 13, but we had guys as young as 10 belaying each other (with close adult supervision).
