What is the ratio for outdoor activities for Cub Scouts?

The minimum ratio for outdoor activities and nights away events is 1 adult to 8 Cub Scouts plus the Leader in charge.  However, you may wish to have more adults present if there is a greater risk to the party during the activity, a night hike for instance.
