J/P HRO is always looking for volunteers to help out at the camp, but this isn't a journey for those looking to take a short vacation with a few hours of volunteering thrown in. According to the organization's website, "Volunteers are expected to be available to serve, work and assist each day that they are at Petionville Camp. From Monday-Saturday work hours can be long, and daily schedules may be irregular. Volunteers live in tents, sometimes shared with other volunteers or share a bunk room."
They are also very strict about the use of computers or cameras, any blogging or posting about the camp, personal fundraising for the camp, having visitors while there, or taking personal outings. But, as Sean Penn explained to Oprah, the work can definitely be rewarding.
