Children are at the heart of Washburn Center’s mission.
This event serves children who are not yet old enough to receive a vaccine. Out of an abundance of caution, we want to do all we can for the safety of children.
Case rates within Hennepin/Ramsey County are dramatically increasing due to the Delta variant, with more children testing positive. This unexpected variant was not a consideration when we originally embarked on planning the event.
Registration is free. If you choose to donate $10/child you will receive a t-shirt and prize pack in the mail!

We encourage you to register in advance to get updates.
Washburn Center for Children is Minnesota’s leading children’s mental health center that offers transformative therapy to children experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression and learning difficulties.
The nonprofit has helped Twin Cities children have happier, healthier futures since 1883. As a vital community resource, Washburn Center serves nearly 3,900 children and approximately 11,700 family members each year through an array of center-based, in-home and school programs.
One out of five Minnesota children will experience mental health challenges, yet only 20% get the help they need. Washburn ensures caregivers have a resource to help kids who are hurting on the inside.
Washburn Center believes a child’s mental health is as important as their physical health. Our compassionate child therapists help children develop the skills to be successful at home, in school and in the community.
The Washburn Games will send several e-newsletters to registered families between the time they register and the day of the event. The newsletter will feature fun facts about the events, videos and reminders to keep your family excited for the event.
If you choose to donate 10/child, not only will you receive access to virtual content to different videos including sports, mindfulness activities and more, you will also receive a prize pack by mail, including:
