Phil Parent began his career in the automotive industry. He then worked a number of recreation-based jobs, including managing a paintball company and working as a camp counselor. He became the manager of the Cardinal/Ottawa South KOA in 2005, transforming a tired old campground into an award-winning, recreation hot spot. Under Phil's management, the campground won the 2009 KOA Rising Star award. With this achievement, along with his desire to see other businesses find similar success, he started his own recreation company in 2010.

From the beginning, Phil's emphasis has been on service and providing the best products on the market. The Big Bouncer, Dino Carts, and Climbing Webs are just a few of the great products he endorses.

The companies unusual outlook reflects its owner -- out-of-the-box thinking with an eye for detail, and an offbeat sense of humor. This interesting combination has attracted the attention of KOA Campgrounds and private campgrounds alike.
