Teen AXN League is a collective of female and transgender individuals who work year-round alongside Girls Rock NC to create safer, creative spaces for youth of marginalized genders. In addition to hosting a number of open mics throughout the Triangle area, Teen AXN Leaguers primarily work to organize a week-long, overnight music retreat. Much like GRNC's regular summer program, campers were divided into five bands, and had the week to compose and learn 2-3 original songs. Interspersed between practice sessions were a number of workshops led by campers, with topics ranging from screenprinting, to testing unconventional instruments, to zine-making and journaling. 

The second annual Teen AXN League camp took place in Hillsborough, NC, from August 6-11, 2016, and culminated in a showcase of collective brilliance courtesy of Pool Gayte, Moon Hoax, Little Zero, i!, and Karma Driftwood on August 12 at Kings in downtown Raleigh.
