It purely depends on how fit the kids are and how they have been raised. One of our 3-year-old nieces can do all the fireflies locations easily, but my 16-year-old cousin can't even dare to think of going to any of the events listed on our website. His parents have raised him in such a way that now he is incapable of being in nature.
