FWIW, this exact situation occurred with my den. As Wolves (and I was ADL)
the DL had us meeting in the school cafeteria. Every meeting the boys were like
electrons, flying all over the place with just some vague notion
of where the central meeting area was. When we became bears (and I took
over as DL) the first thing I did was move the meeting area from the
cafeteria into the art room across the hall. The room is much smaller
(it's a regular classroom) so they have less room to move around in.
They also relate to the area as a classroom and all of the den,
including the most active, are more inclined to sit. When it's game time,
we all orderly walk into the cafeteria where they can move aournd.
Then it's back into the art room for closing.
