    ---> Mark went swiming almost everyday in his childhood in Australia
    Am I correct to use "in" here?

    2)
    I wish I hadn't told him what we were planning to do this evening

    Am I correct to use "in" here? It is fine, but then I would change "in his childhood" to "during his childhood".

    Is it ok for me to use plan without s here? Yes - given the context that you are discussing a specific plan rather than your plans in general.
