EVERYTHING depends on the parents and the leaders. The biggest problems arrise when a group is church run. The LDS groups are famous for having leaders that really don't want to be there, they are there because that's where they have been told to "serve". They are also the groups that most often "forget" to get their leaders the required training.
Most groups that are Non-Church run, practicing a religon is encouraged but not primary, nor are they supposed to dictate which religon is to be practiced.
