1314 Shocco Springs Road

Talladega, AL 35161

Shocco Springs is one of Student Life's classic locations. Modeled after a modern wooded retreat, everything is at your fingertips. The campus is full of attractions within walking distance (a full list of activities is included below under the PLAY section). One of the biggest draws at Shocco is the convenience of having so many things available on campus, enabling groups to forget about the need to leave campus or even cross busy streets to reach anything at camp.

Shocco Springs Conference Center gives the feeling of being tucked comfortably away in a retreat location that allows for focus, fun and relaxation. It's located just outside Talladega, Alabama, (one hour from Birmingham and two hours from Atlanta), in the middle of beautiful, pristine forestland. Students looking for an ideal outdoor spot for personal Bible study won't have to look long or hard, neither will youth groups looking for open spaces. There are multiple options available for recreation and relaxation, which include the popular Aqua Jump, Floating Iceberg and Wet Willie Water Slide.

Shocco's commitment to excellence in ministry explains their partnership with Student Life since 1998. The addition of the new activities center can accommodate a large-group gathering of students hungry for worship, while the city of Talladega and surrounding areas provide a wealth of valuable service opportunities for students participating in Student Life Mission Camp.

The facilities at Shocco are all within a short walk from each other, and they're all dedicated to facilitating students' weeklong pursuit of God at camp.
