All 3 statements are grammatically correct if "for" is used. "for" is a preposition that is used to show a length of time.

From Oxford Dictionary:

  1. used to show a length of time

I'm going away for a few days.
That's all the news there is for now.

@Panda is correct but all of the sentences are also grammatical if you omit the for. You could also substitute during for for. Whichever word you choose (for, during, no preposition at all), the meaning will be understood.
