I read a sentence:
If you went somewhere for the summer, you stayed there.
Is it a correct sentence. Can I use for before the summer. I feel it is during. which one is right. If for is correct How can you justify that there should be for.

for the summer --> from the beginning of the summer to the end you will be there
during the summer --> unspecific duration
in the summer --> does not imply duration
