My 15-year-old son and his 13-year-old cousin had an experience summer camp backpacking experience. They really enjoyed the counselors, exploring Yosemite and being out in nature for a glorious 6 days. Best part of the trip for them was hiking to Half Dome. I hadn't expected this to be part of the trip, so was a bit concerned when they came back and showed me the YouTube videos of how you get to the summit. A call to Scott revealed that Lasting Adventures has vast experience with Half Dome and is looked by many others for their expertise. Scott was happy to get my call and happily took my suggestion that more information about his team's experience be posted on the Lasting Adventure website.
