menstrual cups and outdoor adventures

if your daughter or you (as a teen or young adult) were going to an all girls outdoor adventure camp, how would you feel if the company suggested that if she will possibly be on her period during the trip that she use a menstrual cup, and suggest brands for younger girls?
EDIT
I am an outdoor recreation major. I am developing four comprehensive outdoor adventure programs for girls and women. (one for girls + their moms, one for women 35-50), one for young adult women who want more in depth knowledge/skills of outdoor activities and one for girls who are having trouble managing their weight) Because the entire program is designed specifically for women, there would be a page in the program info packet (what you recieve to help you pick what program you want to participate in) with information on being a woman living in the outdoors. Dealing with menstruation is obviously a big part of that. they would be given the info right off the bat and wouldn't be pressured into opting for a cup.
