"Cam loved the class last year

and is really looking forward

to it again this summer. It's the

only all-day camp he has ever

wanted to attend. Thank you!"

"I want you to know that my son had, ‘The best time ever!’ last night. He was giddy all the way home, and since we live an hour away, that is saying something! He stated that it was the first time in his life that he felt like he fit in. You have a wonderful program full of heart."


- Marcy R.

"I don't know how you do it! My kindergartener hasn't stopped talking about chess since your class today. My 2nd grader also thinks you are great and sooo funny! Thanks for bringing my children so much joy through chess."


- Heidi M.

"Our son had a ball at your event this past Saturday!  He was on Cloud 9 all day! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"


- Rebecca K.

"I'm so impressed with how excited both my son and daughter were after their first chess class with Vellotti's Chess Kids.  We got out the chess board that their grandfather hand-made for the very first time, and we haven't stopped playing since!  We even bought a magnetic chess set so we can play when we go camping too!"


- Jerry H.

"What a wonderful experience the tournament was last evening.  You and your wife obviously are great contributors to our youth and community in Boise.  I just wanted to let you know how impressed we are with your program and how excited our son is!  Nice job!" 


- Marla J.

- Jennifer P.

"I think it's Heaven on Earth for Kids!"

"You do a great job! Thank you so much for all that you do for the kids."


- Leslie M.

"Thank you for making this such a fun and creative environment for the kids! I can tell Nicholas has walked away every day feeling special and excited about continuing to learn. I appreciate how you welcome every child as the enter and make them feel valued and welcome. He's hooked!"


- Jen K.

"Justin absolutely loves your program! He is definitely thriving in it. I was so proud of him winning first place in his division on Saturday. It is so refreshing to have finally found something that Justin truly enjoys. 


I have been extremely impressed with your chess program, the tournaments, and the Lego/Chess camps. I enjoy getting to know your family. You and your wife have done such a nice job raising your sons, and it greatly impresses me that they are chess champions and chess teachers themselves. 


Thank you for all of the great work that you are doing with Justin."
