Many of the parks offer Junior Ranger camps scheduled through out the summer.
The caravan has traveled to 22 schools across the region to deliver high-energy, educational message from a Titans player, eight-time Pro Bowl Titans mascot T-Rac, host Rhett Bryan, and representatives from Tennessee State Parks.
