Nope. "Since summer" is the most natural. "Since the summer" is quite possible, but you would usually see more, like "since the summer Teddy went to Algeria". "Since the last summer" is only possible if there is more, like "since the last summer we had on the lake". I can't think of a context that would permit "for the last summer".

Do we say "I haven't seen you FOR the last week" or " I haven't seen you SINCE the last week"?

Omar Ahmed"I haven't seen you FOR the last week"

This is correct and means that you last saw her seven days ago, perhaps more.

Omar Ahmed" I haven't seen you SINCE the last week"

This is incorrect. You can't use "the" there:

"I haven't seen you since last week."

This means that the last time you saw her was during the calendar week just before this one, very probably three days or more because you would only say that from Monday on, and you wouldn't say "last week" if you saw her over the weekend.
