    Hi, Gary,
    I think the preposition for is used after the destination:
    Some of our girls went on a picnic.
    Some of our girls went to Belwood for a picnic.

    Lightbulb Re: went on picnic, went for picnic

    When you your statement is,

    1. Some of the girls went FOR a picnic (it means, that the action is done for a specif purpose or intention)

    While,

    2. Some of the girls went ON a picnic
    (it means , that the action is done on a spevific topic.)


    As ONE of the RULES about the usage of the word "FOR",


    May these explanation would be a great help for you.
