Never punish boys because of how adults behave.
Send the boys their awards (to their homes) with a letter letting them know they are welcome in your Pack but if they decide - individually - to join another unit you wish them well. Make sure that if they do move, you forward their records to the new unit.
BTW, all leaders serve at the pleasure of the Troop Committee and the Chartered Organization. If this Den Leader is a real problem, he can be "fired" and a new Den Leader appointed. This can get hairy in practice, but it can be done.
Yours in Scouting
