    I would take this seriously.

    Notify your insurance company and do what they say.

    Agree, definitely notify your homeowner's ins. co. of this letter & they will go from there.

    Being a child they may be claiming an attractive nuisance. Forward the letter to your homeowner insurance carrier and let them handle it.

    They could be. A landowner may be held liable for injuries to children trespassing on their land if the injury is caused by a hazardous object on the land or condition of the land that is likely to attract children, who are unable to "appreciate/understand completely" the risk posed by the object or condition.
