There is no such provision in the statutes. If the parenting plan doesn't call for a temporary abatement of support, then he is obligated to pay as the agreement is written. He can certainly seek to modify the support order, but my professional experience is that a judge won't change it. Keep in mind that child support payments can be used for many things which indirectly or directly relate to the child, such as a roof over their heads, groceries, utilities, insurance or many other things. These expenses (such as a mortgage, utilities, car payment, medical insurance, etc) don't stop simply because the child is not with the mother for part of the summer, and many parents rely on the support to help meet these obligations.
