    "During your summer vacation" - if you mean during the period of time that the student was out of school. (We end school in early June and resume in late August here.)

    "On your summer vacation" - if you mean while they went on some sort of trip or excursion. During my daughter's summer vacation, we went on a vacation to the beach.
