chlorine/sweat with dread perm

so I've read the memories about chlorine and swimming with dreads. i've also read up on the affects of chlorine on permed hair. most of what i've seen is that i'll have to be very careful.

but i'm going to be working at a summer camp for about three months with kids this summer, and i was planning on starting my dreads a couple weeks before the camp begins.

camp means swimming, sweating (and lots of it since i live in florida), and showering, every single day.
i'm scared of mold, stinking like crazy, and the damaging affects of chlorine.

i realize it will be a lot to take care of. is it too much though? should i wait until after the summer?
or suggestions?
