I spent 9 years as an ACF Officer and NEVER did any survival type training. Everything is focussed on syllabus and D o E Award.
I did enjoy my time with them and gained quals in shooting, pyrotechnics & supervising field craft training and assault courses.
I have now been out for 8 years, but recently took a group of kids from school for a weeks residential with my old colleagues from the ACF. My old Major said that everything has been killed off by paperwork & risk assessments - e.g. just to get an air rifle out, you have to be range qualified and submit a RA 8 weks in advance now!
On the other hand, I am now a Scout Leader and have recently completed my adult training. We have had 4 camps this year so far - one of which was a backwoods style - no tents, cooking over open fires etc.
Both organisations do a sterling job, however I would say Scouts for a more bushcrafty type.
Just my thoughts.
