Family learning and fun time

Up in Maine, at our cabin, is a wonderful lake that is about 1.5 miles around. We would like to teach ourselves and our children and cousins how to sail. The lake is relatively private with not much powerboat action at all. Been considering picking up a Sunfish but starting thinking about the need to have an adult with a child while sailing. Also started thinking of ballasted vs. unballasted boats too. The children, even the older ones, range from 19 to 5 with the majority between 7 and 15. Would prefer some options please and thank you for the guidance. No one truly has any well developed sailing skills.
